The Delano Police Department Narcotic Investigations Team works closely with federal, state, and local law enforcement to stop the illegal distribution, sales, transportation, and use of illegal drugs within our city.
These highly trained professionals are experienced in not only patrol and criminal investigations, but drug enforcement and investigation as well. They attend training that gives them up to date information which affords them an upper hand when dealing with illegal drugs.
Over the last year, this Department has been responsible for removing approximately 26 pounds of various illegal drugs from our streets, seized more than $93,000.00 in drug monies, and have arrested over 60 drug offenders, and served about 30 drug related search warrants, due mostly in part through the efforts of the Narcotics Investigation Team.
Our staff will take anonymous tips regarding drug use, sales, and distribution. Your information will be held in strict confidence. You may call and leave a message for them by calling 661-721-3369. Further, if you do not desire to speak directly with an investigator, you may write them at:
