Q. What is the CCITF?
A. The Clackamas County Inter-agency Task Force (CCITF) is a coordinated group effort by local and federal law-enforcement officials to reduce illegal drugs and related crimes -- including child endangerment -- in Clackamas County.
The United States Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) designated Clackamas County as a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) in 2008. The CCITF is funded in part by Oregon's HIDTA program grants, which administered by ONDCP.
The CCITF's investigative focus is identified by Task Force member communities and tips from the public.
Q. How does it work?
A. The Task Force targets Clackamas County’s illegal drug-trafficking organizations (DTOs) and distributors through interdiction of sales, trafficking and related crimes. The CCITF handles calls large and small -- from street-level sales to wide-scale DTOs.
The CCITF also works with local community organizations and government agencies (including Code Enforcement and crime-prevention organizations) to step up the pressure on offenders.
Q. Which agencies participate in the CCITF?
A. The CCITF employs full- and part-time personnel. It's supervised by a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Lieutenant and two Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Sergeants. Its members include investigators, federal law-enforcement agents, analysts and support staff. The CCITF is also overseen by an Executive Board comprising representatives from member agencies. Participating agencies and staff include:
- Gladstone Police
- Oregon City Police
- Canby Police
- Milwaukie Police
- Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office
- Clackamas County Community Corrections
- Clackamas County District Attorney’s Office
- Oregon State Police
- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
Q. How is the CCITF funded?
A. In agreement with participating agencies, the CCITF is funded as a cooperative effort. The Task Force is partially funded by a yearly HIDTA grant, as well as other grants. Participating agencies jointly fund common equipment, including office space and phones. Each CCITF member uses equipment provided by his or her own home agency.
