We have a joint interdiction effort between the Kentucky State Police, County and city police in my area we generally cover all limited access, US and state highways we have K-9 support and Commercial Vehicle Enforcement.


Pain is weakness leaving the body.

Obstacles are what we see when we take our eyes off the goal.

I worked Interstate Interdiction in Newton, MS while I was stationed at Naval Air Station Meridian.  I was a member of Desert Snow "Navyfiveo", but since I quit working Interdiction when I moved overseas I am not eligible to keep my account. 


Our department bought the vehicle database and we loaded it in our car terminals.  It was a GREAT tool to find all of the hiding spots when my dog wasn't working. 


If I have offended anyone, so be it.

We are located in the NW corner of La.  We have i-20, US 79, and US 80 in our jurisdiction.  I've been trying to put a team together for about three years, but think that I've finally got 2 or 3 officers that will actually get out there and work it.

I'm a TX DPS Trooper (K9), the way our agency conducts interdiction is with every stop, "going beond the traffic stop". Even as a K9 handler I have to conduct the regular duties along with K9 training. We do have a state team that travel all over the state. Some are members of Desert Snow and the Road Worriors.


Good luck and be safe.

That'd be great, but the new officers that we're seeing mostly want to do their shift, draw a check and go home.  I'd like to have some of my people that didn't have to worry about checking businesses, neighborhoods, and answering calls......strictly working traffic, but like you said "going beyond the traffic stop."

In my opinion, that is the best attitude toward interdiction possible. We have all sworn an oath to uphold the law. It irritates me to hear of officers/Troopers that brag of the number of citations they can write in a year's time, yet make minimal DUI's and no drug arrests. They are doing nothing but filling squares. It's like the folks here that post for no other reason that to gather points.   It's an attitude that prevails with many departments, my own included. I'll state unequivocally, the only way an officer or Trooper can write 1200 to 1500 citations a year and not make a drug case is because they don't want to. Additionally, interdiction is not just about drugs. It's also about capturing wanted persons, felons that travel our highways from location to location. In the past 10 years and nearly 100,000 vehicles that our dogs have been used to sniff, evidence of drug use/possession was found in 12%. Think of that, twelve percent. Think of that 12% the next time you start pulling vehicles over, writing the ticket and start thinking of the next ticket you can write.

We are supposed to go beond the stop, and are trained to ask the the criminal interdiction questions. But like you said most agencys, especially mine are after, speed, seatbelts and dwi, and hope you get good criminal cases. Even the rookies feel the presure to stop 100 cars a week....The saying is 25 will keep the LT away. As K9 I am also expected to produce the numbers. I'm on call all of the time, and I am never called out. Basty and I only do narcotics, but still we are never used. I don't think I have over 70 searches for the year, and only 2 major cold finds. I wish the brass would not put the pressure on for # of stops per hour, but they do. Sometimes they can get so bad as to figure # of stops per miles driven.

I worked for an agency at one time that limited the # of miles we could drive/shift.  After those miles were used, we were expected to do bicycle patrol.
