Welcome to the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement (DNE) home page. Our mission is to serve the people of Iowa by investigating illegal narcotic operations within the state and working with authorities outside the state to stop the distribution, manufacture, and abuse of illegal narcotics.

Created in 1987, DNE was established to serve as the lead agency in the state providing public safety through investigative enforcement of laws relating to narcotics and other controlled substances. In addition to targeting major distributors/sources of controlled substances, the Division is actively involved in the investigation of drug-related financial conspiracies, clandestine laboratories, marijuana eradication, the diversion of pharmaceuticals, gang-related activities, and assistance in drug interdictions.

Successful investigations and prosecutions of drug cases are due in large part to the Division's cooperative efforts with other local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.
