Annotation: The Oklahoma District Attorneys Council is responsible for administering Federal funds provided for drug and violent crime law enforcement by the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, and the Drug and Violent Crime Policy Board is responsible for implementing programs proven to be effective in drug and violent crime control.
Abstract: Of 21 purpose areas specified in the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, the Drug and Violent Crime Policy Board has prioritized 10 for Oklahoma: multijurisdictional task force programs that integrate Federal, State, and local drug law enforcement agencies and prosecutors; criminal justice information systems; programs to target domestic sources of controlled and illegal substances; disruption of illicit commerce in stolen goods and property; educational programs that promote demand reduction; improved operational effectiveness of law enforcement through crime analysis techniques, street sales enforcement, school violator programs, and gang-related and low-income housing drug control; innovative programs that demonstrate new approaches to drug law enforcement; community and neighborhood programs; programs that meet the treatment needs of adult and juvenile offenders; and programs that provide additional public resources to improve the corrections system. Oklahoma agencies involved in the war on drugs are noted, as well as major organized crime groups involved in drug trafficking in the State. A survey of district attorneys is presented that identifies primary drugs used in Oklahoma and ways of improving the prosecution capability of district attorneys. The declining use of illicit drugs by high school seniors is highlighted. An appendix lists Anti-Drug Abuse Act grants received by Oklahoma. Tables and figures
