Practical Drug Enforcement, Third Edition, is a guide to the contemporary aspects of covert criminal investigations and the management of the drug enforcement unit itself. It addresses methods of detection, investigation, surveillance, and capture of drug traffickers as well as identifying methods commonly used by criminals to avoid detection. Thoroughly updated and revised, this edition includes new topics such as the surreptitious monitoring of suspects and entrapment; drug courier profiling; high-tech surveillance with GPS and thermal imaging; raid procedures for clandestine labs; undercover work, risks, and stress; and informant management. Designed as an investigative resource, this edition allows for concurrent initiatives across jurisdictions in the apprehension and prosecution of drug offenders.

    This is a very valuable textbook for those officers wanting to build on their knowledge in the subject of drug enforcement. However, this book will do no good for the "know-it-all" officer. You know who you are!

    I love the part about the know it all officer. I have heard good things about this book. I believe it would help me in the jail setting also. I am planning to read it soon.

    Having not read this book, I can only say that if it provides the information that it describes and it is up to date information, then I would recommend it for new narcotic investigators.
