DEA's El Paso Field Division (EPFD) is committed to providing the very best anti-drug training, not only for DEA personnel, but also for our State and Local law enforcement counterparts in New Mexico and West Texas.

Drug trafficking organizations are continually changing their methods of operation to thwart law enforcement efforts. To stay abreast of current trends and be effective in disrupting these organizations, we must continue to work together by sharing our information and resources. Through this cooperation, we can provide the quality of service that our citizens demand and deserve. The EPFD Training Unit stands ready to assist in your training needs to further our collective counter-drug mission.

Class offerings may include Telecommunications and Internet Exploitation, Financial Investigations and Tactical Enforcement Training. Clandestine Laboratory Training at our facilities in Quantico, Virginia focuses on combating the growing methamphetamine problem. DEA Drug Unit Commanders Academy (DUCA) is a highly specialized and prestigious school designed for senior level supervisors from State and Local agencies to improve knowledge and cooperation. EPFD also offers training opportunities through our affiliation with the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) program.

Narcotics traffickers are always changing their methods to continue making profits by distributing drugs. To be effective in disrupting these organizations, we must not only stay abreast of current trends, but also continue working together and sharing resources. It is only through this cooperation that we can provide the quality of service that our citizens demand and deserve.
