Vice and Narcotics
Council Bluffs Police Vice/Narcotics Unit
The Council Bluffs Police Vice/Narcotics Unit is currently staffed with five detectives, one Sergeant, and one Lieutenant. It is responsible for the investigation of all narcotic related cases received through citizen calls and tips. All detectives work undercover, making their job one of the most high-risk positions on the Department.
The Vice/Narcotics Unit has been part of a multi-agency task force since 1995. The Southwest Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force is committed to providing quality and professional drug investigative services that promotes a safe and secure community. The task force is made up of officers from the Council Bluffs Police Department, Glenwood Police Department, Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Department, Mills County Sheriff’s Department, and the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department.
We are committed to creating and maintaining active investigations to identify and recognize problems to improve the quality of life within the community. The task force aggressively seeks to identify and pursue for apprehension, any drug dealers in our three county areas through various investigative techniques and our pro-active approach to enforcing the laws.
Without the help of citizens through tips from CrimeStoppers and the Drug Hotline, our job would be much harder. Our task force is very interested in any information another agency or private citizen may have which would make us aware of crimes that have occurred in our three county area. We also seek information on any current investigations.
