The following information comes from the Humboldt County Drug Task Force Annual Report covering 2022.

The mission of the Humboldt County Drug Task Force is to actively investigate the sales, manufacturing and distribution of illicit drugs within Humboldt County by focusing investigative efforts on complex drug trafficking organizations and mid- to high-level drug traffickers.

In 1983, the California Department of Justice Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement established the Humboldt County Drug Task Force after a need for a coordinated and concentrated effort against drug traffickers was recognized. Command has since been transferred to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. The Humboldt County Drug Task Force is the primary narcotic enforcement unit within Humboldt County and is now in its 40th year of operation.
