| The Weber/Morgan Narcotics Strike
Force is a multi jurisdictional drug unit located in Ogden City, Utah.
It is comprised of law enforcement officers from the Weber County
Sheriff's Office, Ogden, Roy, Riverdale, North and South Ogden Police
Departments, and the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). It exists
for the purpose of investigating and prosecuting the illegal importation,
manufacture, use, and sale of controlled substances under local, state
and federal laws. The Strike Force's area of responsibility consists
of Weber and Morgan Counties, which have a combined population of
195,000 and covers 1154 square miles.
The primary focus of the Strike Force is the street level dealer.
This is due to the detrimental impact in the neighborhoods resulting
from the sales of illegal drugs and other criminal activity attributed
to the use and distribution of illegal drugs. A great deal of our
success in this area is a result of the information we receive from
the citizens in our communities about suspected drug activity through
our Tip A Cop program. We've adopted the slogan "It's Your
Neighborhood" to encourage law abiding citizens to take a stand
and collaborate with law enforcement in an effort to remove the
drug element from our neighborhoods.
