A Survey of Strategies for Enforcement of Drug Laws in Mississippi

Group: Joint Legislative Committee on Performance Evaluation and Expenditure Review (PEER)

URL: http://www.peer.state.ms.us/reports/rpt535.pdf

Description

State law gives the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics enforcement of the state’s Uniform Controlled Substances Law as its sole responsibility. State law also assigns responsibility for enforcing the act to “all sworn peace officers of the state”--e. g., county sheriffs and municipal law enforcement. The Legislature is concerned that law enforcement entities may not be working cooperatively to advance state and federal drug control and enforcement policies. PEER surveyed individuals who serve central roles in Mississippi drug law enforcement to determine the opinions that they hold regarding working with each other to enforce such laws.
