Midwest HIDTA High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area
The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) program enhances and coordinates drug control efforts among local, State, and Federal law enforcement agencies. The program provides agencies with coordination, equipment, technology, and additional resources to combat drug trafficking and its harmful consequences in critical regions of the United States.
The mission of the Midwest HIDTA is to reduce drug availability in critical and identified markets by creating and supporting intelligence driven enforcement task forces aimed at eliminating or reducing domestic drug trafficking and its harmful consequences through enhancing and helping to coordinate drug trafficking control efforts among federal, state, and local enforcement agencies. Central to this effort is the formation and enhancement of enforcement task forces.
The Midwest HIDTA is headquartered in Kansas City, MO and its region includes the states of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.
Midwest HIDTA provided funding for the development and implementation of the Life or Meth: What's the Cost? educational curriculum, which you can access via this Web site.
