Narcotics Division (DEU)
One of the top priorities of the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office is to investigate, arrest and aid in the prosecution of those individuals who choose to engage in illegal drug activity. The majority of this responsibility is assigned to the Narcotics Division. The Narcotics Division is a specialized unit, who has partnered with the Greenwood City Police Department, to form a multi-jurisdictional taskforce that operates as the Drug Enforcement Unit or DEU. The DEU was initiated as a means to combine resources and information in an effort to best serve all citizens of Greenwood County. Illegal drugs and the activities/behaviors associated with the use, distribution, manufacturing, etc. of these substances have effects that reach far beyond those directly involved.
The destruction of lives/families, additional criminal activity and the endangerment of innocent citizens/businesses and the neighborhoods/communities in which they live and operate in, can all be contributed to illegal drugs and drug activities. The GCSO Narcotics Division is extremely dedicated, and through their efforts, seek to protect and serve Greenwood County and its citizens to the best of their ability.
