Abstract:

This paper explores measurements of effectiveness for the Department of Defenses current and projected roles in providing support to Drug Law Enforcement Agencies in counter narcotics operations. This study takes a rather broad look at capabilities of the Department of Defense including not only the active components , but also Reserve and National Guard Contributions. The paper begins with a brief history of factors which led to the Department of Defenses involvement in counter narcotics. The second section provides a detailed discussion of studies that clarify and amplify the suggested measures in the recommendation section. Included is information from discussions with the Commander in Chief Southern Command, the Deputy Commander of Joint Task Force Six, representatives of the National Guard Bureau and the various services, and the results of the surveys with the Governors, National Guard Adjutants General, and drug law enforcement agencies. The last section lists recommended methods of measuring the Department of Defense counter narcotics support effectiveness.
