Paper Abstract

In the last 15 years, law enforcement efforts have fallen behind in the area of technology. Narcotic traffickers and suppliers have vast amounts of monies to subvert law enforcement counter narcotic efforts. With this money, narcotic offenders have been able to develop, purchase and utilize technological and scientific measures to further their drug trade. These advances range from simple radio scanners to scientific process to alter drugs until they are ready for distribution. Law enforcement effort needs the assistance of these technological advances to hold the line on narcotic enforcement.
