Lane County’s drug task force is disbanding, effective immediately

The Lane County Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team is disbanding, effective immediately.

The four officers and one sergeant on the team were each funded by their parent agencies. Equipment, building leases for operations and drug-buying money are funded by state and federal forfeitures. Dollar amounts for state and federal funding were not immediately available. But those funds, Lewis said, are diminishing and have been for some time. The lack of funding as well as the whittled down team, has made INET less effective, Lewis said, and the board voted in June to dissolve.
