Annotation: This report presents statistics and other information from the 1994 activities of Minnesota's 28 multijurisdictional narcotics task forces focusing on drug law enforcement.
Abstract: The task forces represent 79 of the State's 87 counties and cover 98 percent of the State's population. The task forces made 2,636 arrests. More than 57 of those arrested were charged with possession, usually of marijuana; about one-third were arrested for distribution. Task forces seized more than 47 kilograms of cocaine, more than 8 kilograms of crack, nearly 3,000 pounds of marijuana, and more than 213,000 marijuana plants. Task forces continue to concentrate on arrests. Arrests in 1994 increased 12 percent from 1993 and 64 percent from 1990. Task force commanders list arrests of midlevel dealers as top priority. Other priorities include street sales, drug manufacturing, and drug importation. Tables and maps
