Serving the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia

The National HIDTA Program’s mission is to disrupt the market for illegal drugs in the United States by assisting Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement entities participating in the HIDTA Program to dismantle and disrupt drug trafficking organizations, with particular emphasis on drug trafficking regions that have harmful effects on other parts of the United States.

The National HIDTA Program’s goals are to:

  1. Disrupt the market for illegal drugs by dismantling or disrupting drug trafficking and/or money laundering organizations

  2. Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of HIDTA initiatives

The vision of the Washington/Baltimore HIDTA is that, within the next five years, our efforts to dismantle and disrupt drug trafficking and money laundering organizations, provide treatment resources, and develop drug prevention programs will save lives and strengthen communities and families in the Washington/Baltimore HIDTA region.

Our mission is to reduce drug trafficking and misuse by improving interagency collaboration, promoting accurate and timely information and intelligence sharing, and providing specialized training and other resources to its law enforcement, intelligence, treatment, and prevention initiatives. To accomplish this mission, the Washington/Baltimore HIDTA will strategically apply its resources to initiatives designed to save lives, prevent initiation of drug use, and apprehend drug traffickers and money launderers.
