Join the DEA Museum virtually on June 17 for the latest installment of their lecture series.
This live discussion will focus on a fundamental element of all major drug trafficking organizations’ (DTOs’) business models and a critical component of DEA’s work: smuggling.
"Smuggling Stories" investigates one of the pillars of DEA’s Kingpin Strategy, which is the disruption of smuggling routes and discovering and seizing shipments of illicit narcotics, weapons, cash, and other goods. The Kingpin Strategy focuses on removing DTOs’ ability to deliver their products to markets in the United States.
Joining us are retired Special Agent Tony Placido and Special Agent Nate Jones. Mr. Placido has decades of experience thwarting the efforts of international DTOs, and Mr. Jones will speak on the unique phenomenon that is our Southern Border.
