Center for Task Force Training Program

The Center for Task Force Training (CenTF) Program provides specialized training for law enforcement personnel who serve on narcotics task forces funded by either Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance formula grants (Byrne Program) or state or local funds. CenTF is funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice.

Created in 1991, the CenTF program strives to increase the operational effectiveness of multijurisdictional narcotics task forces in three distinct areas—task force command and management, methamphetamine investigation management, and raves/club drug awareness. CenTF training classes are taught by operationally experienced, command-level instructors.

The Institute for Intergovernmental Research, a nonprofit organization that specializes in law enforcement research and education, coordinates the CenTF training program. Each CenTF course may be cohosted by a combination of state, county, or local law enforcement agencies; the Regional Information Sharing Systems Intelligence Center for that area; the local U.S. Attorney’s Office; the state’s narcotics association; or the state’s administrative agency that administers the Byrne Programs.

There are no registration or tuition fees. Participants may be eligible to receive Peace Officer Standards and Training credit for attending a CenTF course. To supplement the delivery of CenTF training courses, a web-based resource center (www.iir.com/centf) for law enforcement use has been developed. The center provides a centralized source of current narcotics investigative information for law enforcement practitioners and includes periodicals, available training, relevant web sites, and other narcotics enforcement-related information.
