Summary
With the increased crime and violence in the 1980s associated with drug use and trafficking, the President declared that the smuggling of illegal drugs into the country was a national security problem. Although DOD had supported LEA counternarcotics activities since 1981, it had not taken a direct role in drug interdiction. DOD has organized for the detection and monitoring mission in the same manner that it customarily organizes for its traditional military missions. It established a centralized command structure with regional execution of the operations phase. Through this structure, it also provides intelligence support to LEAs. DOD has undertaken two major initiatives to establish an integrated communications network. First, with funds appropriated for the counternarcotics mission, it purchased telecommunications equipment for loan to LEAs to facilitate interoperable and secure communications. Second, it established an automated telecommunications information network to link DOD and LEA drug interdiction operations and intelligence organizations and to provide tracking data on drug smugglers
