SLEDNET - Narcotics
SLEDNET is an acronym for the South Lake El Dorado Narcotics Enforcement Team. This is a specialized multi-agency investigative unit which is supervised through the California Department of Justice, Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement. This task force functions with participation from the South Lake Tahoe Police Department, the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department, the Alpine County Sheriff’s Department, California Highway Patrol, and California DOJ. SLEDNET investigates illicit drug related offenses throughout the south shore area of Lake Tahoe.
Over several years, the number of investigators and participating agencies has varied somewhat. Nevertheless, the core agencies of the South Lake Tahoe Police Department, El Dorado Sheriff’s Department, and California Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement have always been present.
