    Advanced Methamphetamine Investigative Training

    With the increase in the manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine and meth-related gang activity, the need for law enforcement to effectively combat meth-related crime is also on the rise. The identification and dismantling of labs and the investigation and prosecution of meth-related cases are critical to the safety of our nation's law enforcement, citizens, and the environment. Changes in the production and trafficking of methamphetamine continue to cause concern for law enforcement personnel nationwide, along with the movement of more potent Mexican meth across the country and the resurgence of small one-pot labs used by less experienced cooks and users. This training focuses on investigative strategies that address these concerns and promote effective and safe outcomes for law enforcement and citizens.

    Training Topics Include:
    Methamphetamine Review
    Investigative Techniques
    Investigative Toolbox
    Meth Lab Cleanup

    Training Schedule:
    November 7, 2011: Birmingham, Alabama

    Office of Justice Programs (OJP) Special Requirements

    Agencies that use OJP funds for the seizure and closing of clandestine labs are required to adhere to certain requirements:

    Provide medical screening of personnel assigned or to be assigned by the grantee to the seizure or closure of clandestine methamphetamine laboratories.

    Provide Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-required initial and refresher training for law enforcement officials and all other personnel assigned to either the seizure or closure of methamphetamine laboratories.

    As determined by their specific duties, equip the personnel with OSHA-required protective wear and other required safety equipment.

    Assign properly trained personnel to prepare a comprehensive contamination report on each seized/closed laboratory.

    Utilize qualified disposal personnel to remove all chemicals and associated glassware, equipment, and contaminated materials and wastes from the site(s) of each seized laboratory.

    Dispose of the chemicals, equipment, and contaminated materials and wastes at properly licensed disposal facilities or, when allowable, at properly licensed recycling facilities.

    Monitor the transport, disposal, and recycling components of subparagraphs 5 and 6 above in order to ensure proper compliance.

    Have in place and implement a written agreement with the responsible state environmental agency. The agreement must provide that the responsible state environmental agency agrees to:

    Timely evaluate the environmental conditions at and around the site of a closed clandestine laboratory.
    Coordinate with the responsible party, property owner, or others to ensure that any residual contamination is remediated, if determined necessary by the state environmental agency and in accordance with existing state and federal requirements.

    In the seizure of clandestine methamphetamine laboratories, ensure immediate response by qualified personnel who can:

    Respond to the potential health needs of any minor, as defined by state law, at the site.
    Take the minor, as defined by state law, into protective custody, but not including any minor involved in the methamphetamine laboratory criminal enterprise.
