Special Investigations



The Special Investigations Division (SID) investigates illegal drug activity and related crimes. It also monitors gang activity, which often overlaps with illegal drug activity.

The Special Investigations Unit operates under the philosophy that people should be able to expect a safe, non-violent, drug-free neighborhood in which to live, work and raise a family. Members of this division are dedicated to pro-active strategies targeting street-level drug dealers and users that negatively impact neighborhoods and deprive residents of a feeling of safety and security. SID agents are always searching for innovative ways to combat the threat posed by illegal drugs.

The Special Investigations Division works with other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in combating illegal narcotic distribution networks. SID works closely with members of the District Attorney's Office, as well as the Assistant U.S. Attorneys in preparing prosecutions for drug-related crimes and associated crimes of violence.

Drug problems in Roswell are similar to those in other communities across the country. All citizens share a responsibility to take a stand against illegal drug use and work together to assist their communities by letting law enforcement know when they think there may be drug activity occurring.
