Drug Trafficking in the Workplace

Under a national initiative funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, ILJ and Hallcrest Systems, Inc., developed protocols to help the private sector work with federal, state, and local law enforcement to investigate and prosecute workplace drug crimes. The main product was a set of guidelines approved by experts in the investigation and prosecution of workplace drug crimes. The protocols represent the first nationwide joint effort between the public and private sectors to address the issue of drug trafficking in the workplace. After testing, the protocols will be distributed to the nation's 16,000 law enforcement agencies; prosecutors; corporate security and human resource managers; and business, security, and criminal justice associations. Project products also included a literature review, legal analysis, and case studies.
