The New England High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) is one of 32 HIDTAs under the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and is comprised of the six New England states, including Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Based on regional drug threat assessments, including the New England HIDTA Drug Threat Assessment published annually by the New England HIDTA Investigative Support Center (ISC), the New England HIDTA has formulated strategies in response to the most serious drug threats to the region. These strategies are implemented by the 20 enforcement initiatives spread throughout the six New England states. Each initiative is a cooperative effort among federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies working together to target drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) and money laundering organizations (MLOs) that impact this region and other HIDTA regions throughout the country.
