Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2023, $90,321)

The number one goal of the Scott County Special Operations Unit Task Force (SCSOUTF) is to educate and prevent drug use and to reduce the amount of illegal narcotics available to the public and to identify and arrest those who distribute and/or manufacture illegal narcotics in our community. The SCSOUTF has a three-tiered approach it uses in accomplishing the goals of the unit. Covert operations entail working in an undercover capacity, overt capacity address the narcotic interdiction efforts of the SCSOU, and the education component addresses educational, civic and community needs by discussing the dangers of illegal narcotics and those who distribute and/or manufacture them.
The SCSOUTF consists of three local law enforcement agencies (Davenport Police Department, Bettendorf Police Department, and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office), the Scott County Attorney’s Office, one federal prosecutor’s office, the FBI and the DEA. The SCSOUTF Board consists of the Chiefs and Sheriff of the Scott County law enforcement agencies, the Scott County Attorney’s Office, and the Iowa United States Attorney’s Office.
The SCSOUTF measures its success by the quantity of narcotics seized and taken out of our community, the number of drug trafficking organizations dismantled or disrupted, the number of felony arrests, the number of weapons taken off our streets and the number of educational presentations provided to the community.
