Upon taking office in July of 2008, Sheriff Ackal commissioned ten P.O.S.T. certified law enforcement officers and assigned them to the Bureau of Investigations, Narcotics Division.
These agents conduct investigations that lead to the apprehension and prosecution of drug law violators throughout Iberia Parish.
In an effort to combat illegal narcotics and violent crimes in Iberia Parish, narcotics agents also conduct V.I.C.E. Operations. These actions have resulted in numerous arrests, including prostitution, illegal gambling, etc.
Sheriff Ackal has also implemented various training programs that provide training to the narcotics division ranging from street level narcotics enforcement to long term conspiracy and narcotic trafficking investigations. Numerous local, state and federal agencies are assisting the Sheriff in providing this important training.
This training, along with
the skills and dedication of the members of the Narcotics Division, plays a
vital part in the attempt to sever the narcotics trafficking pipeline that
ultimately leads to the streets and neighborhoods of Iberia Parish.
Since July 2008, the Narcotics Division has been working closely with local, state and federal agencies; including the Drug Enforcement Administration, Federal Bureau of Investigations, United States Marshals Office, Louisiana State Police and several local agencies throughout the state and United States.
