Drug and Human Trafficking
The Illinois State Police, Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Drug and Human Trafficking Enforcement effort is comprised of nine Metropolitan Enforcement Groups (MEGs) and13 Multi-Jurisdiction Drug Task Forces (Task Forces), and the Trafficking Enforcement Bureau (TEB). The TEB provides program support for the MEGs and Task Forces and conducts investigations and operations related to human trafficking throughout the state. The MEGs and Task Forces are comprised of DCI supervisors and special agents, as well as police officers and detectives assigned by local law enforcement agencies. MEGs and Task Forces partner with the Statewide Terrorism Intelligence Center (STIC) and counterdrug analysts, as well as the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the United States Marshals Service (USMS), and other agencies, to reduce crime through intelligence-led policing, which focuses enforcement efforts on high level drug distribution and trafficking. These units also partner with community groups, health organizations, and local stakeholders to address and prevent substance use disorder, which is affecting communities throughout Illinois, and provide support for victims of human trafficking.
