The Clackamas County Inter-agency Task Force is comprised of local, state and federal law enforcement officials aiming to reduce illegal drugs and drug-related crime.

The task force is funded by Oregon’s  High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program grants. The program, created by Congress with the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, designates 28 areas as critical drug-trafficking regions throughout the United States.

Clackamas County is considered to be a high intensity drug trafficking area. Nearby Marion, Wasco, Jefferson, Washington and Multnomah counties are also considered to be high intensity drug trafficking areas, according to the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
