The Tactical Diversion Squads (TDS) combine DEA resources with those of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in an innovative effort to investigate, disrupt and dismantle those suspected of violating the Controlled Substances Act or other appropriate federal, state or local statutes pertaining to the diversion of licit pharmaceutical controlled substances or listed chemicals.

The TDS units:

  • Allow for the unification of separate and sometimes disparate federal, state, and local information, authorities, and enforcement programs
  • Help coordinate with various judicial districts to maximize the effectiveness of multiple investigations and prosecutions of those involved in the diversion of controlled substances or listed chemicals
  • Support traditional Diversion Groups when law enforcement authority is required (i.e., making arrests, purchase of evidence, payment of information, conducting surveillance, executing a search warrant)
