Narcotics

Major Mike Solet, Narcotics Commander

Like virtually every community in the U.S., Terrebonne Parish is infected with the destructive influence of illegal drugs. Terrebonne's proximity to larger cities, as well as its location on the Gulf of Mexico, contribute to the drug problem.

Led by Major Daryll Stewart, the TPSO Narcotics unit wages a consistent and effective war against those who traffic in and infect others with illegal drugs, and has amassed an enviable record of arrests and seizures.

The Narcotics Division conducts covert street jumps to identify problem areas and street level drug law violators, documents and investigates intelligence information concerning illegal drug activities as well as conduct reverse sting operations. They also conduct and oversee controlled covert purchases of illegal drugs utilizing undercover agents and/or confidential informants, work with other agencies in the state in targeting drug law violators and keep updated in the trends of the illegal drug trade and drug laws.
