Narcotics and Criminal Interdiction Vehicles
Thanks to drug dealers, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Narcotics and Criminal Interdiction program is now funded 100% by the drug fund, utilizing zero tax dollars. In addition to apprehending drug smugglers traveling through Monroe County by way of the interstate and major highways, the Criminal Interdiction team is also active throughout the county to aid in reducing illegal activity.
