Narcotics Strike Force


Narcotics Strike Force

The mission of the Prosecutor’s newly formed Narcotics Strike Force is to identify, investigate and apprehend those individuals and organized criminal groups engaged in the distribution of narcotics. Detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, Ocean County Sheriff’s Department and municipal police departments combine to form three proactive units: the Northern and Southern Enforcement teams, as well as the recently formed Asset Forfeitures Unit. The Northern and Southern teams are responsible for all narcotic enforcement activities in their respective areas of operation. The function of the Asset Forfeitures Unit is to identify and seize illegal proceeds obtained by those individuals or groups that are engaged in the distribution of narcotics. The Asset Forfeitures Unit also assists the County’s local police departments with also identifying, investigating and seizing illegal proceeds.
