SAN BERNARDINO – The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors accepted a grant of $1 million High-Intensity Drug Trafficking grant, San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Chair Robert A. Lovingood announced. “This is an important element in our approach to fighting drug trafficking in the region,” Lovingood said following Tuesday’s Board action.
The grant is a federal grant, which will provide funding for the Inland Regional Narcotics Enforcement Team and the Regional Methamphetamine Task Force. The Inland Regional Narcotics Enforcement Team is comprised of San Bernardino law enforcement officers and several Federal and State Investigators. This grant will provide funding to law enforcement agencies who are in critical drug-trafficking regions of the United States.
“The High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) program has helped our local efforts to reduce drug trafficking in our County,” Sheriff McMahon said. “Without the funding, cooperation among our Federal and local law enforcement partners to share information and implement coordinated enforcement activities would not be as successful without the program.”
