Investigative Support Center

  Increasing the Safety of America's Citizens
by reducing drug-related crime and violence.


Welcome to the Nevada High Intensity Drug Traffic Area (HIDTA) website. Here you will find important information about Nevada's HIDTA program including our Nevada Law Enforcement Training Program available to all of Nevada's law enforcement, links to many other agencies, and general information about Nevada HIDTA's programs. HIDTA was created by Congress in 1988 as a program designed for improving law enforcement’s ability to impact crime and address these regional issues through agency cooperation and collaboration. Nevada HIDTA supports coordinated law enforcement strategies which maximize the use of available resources to reduce drug and gang related crime through enforcement, intelligence, prevention and training of officers and agents. The endurance of HIDTA due to innovation, neutrality, flexibility, and diversity in collaboration with our many community partners.

The Nevada Watch Center operation and intelligence deconfliction system is available 24/7 in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Information Network (RMIN), the Western Regional Information System (WSIN) and the Regional Information Sharing System (RISS) a nationwide intelligence system. This system is for law enforcement only. The statewide phone numbers is 1-888-294-2337, an email for questions is nevadawc@rmin.riss.net. I strongly urge all law enforcement to use this system to ensure officer safety during plain clothes, covert operations and for case enhancing intelligence. Today's modern deconfliction systems have saved many lives across our nation.
