Deputies assigned to the Laurens County Sheriff's Office Nacotics and Vice Unit are responsible for investigating narcotics offenses by developing confidential sources and through undercover investigations. Investigators in this assignment are highly motivated and are responsible for initiating their own investigations, whereas most other investigations units conduct follow up work on crimes that have already occurred. These deputies initiate investigations based on information received from a variety of sources including patrol officers, community members, confidential informants, and other law enforcement agencies.
The primary focus of this unit is directed towards drug dealers operating throughout Laurens County. Investigations can range from arresting street level dealers and shutting down a nuisance drug house, to long term investigations that dismantle complex drug trafficking organizations. The unit investigate all types of illegal narcotics including heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, marijuana, and illegal prescription drugs. These investigators work closely in partnership with the local, state and federal agencies to reduce the illegal drug trade.
