Drug Enforcement Administration
Houston Field Division
DEA’s Houston Field Division (HFD) is committed to the very best anti-drug training, not only to DEA personnel, but also for our State and Local law enforcement counterparts in southeastern Texas.
If funding is available, the HFD presents a variety of training courses, the most prominent being the DEA Basic Narcotic Investigator's Course. This two-week program is designed for police officers new to drug law enforcement, as a refresher for officers returning to drug enforcement, or those wishing to enhance their skills to expand investigations. Attendees are given current and relevant information on: Drug Identification; Surveillance Techniques; Interview and Interrogation; Raid Planning and Execution; Asset Forfeiture; Undercover Techniques; Informant Management; and, Conspiracy Law.
There are no upcoming courses scheduled at this time. Future courses will be posted on the Houston Field Division Training Course Schedule page.

Drug trafficking organizations are always changing their methods of operation to continue making profits. If we are to be effective in disrupting these organizations we need to not only stay abreast of current trends, but also to 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. The HFD Training Unit stands ready to assist in your training needs to further our collective counter-drug mission.
