Tactical Narcotics Team (TNT)

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office operates a multi-agency drug suppression unit and has done so since 1989. This unit is comprised of investigators from this office as well as representatives from the police departments of Fayetteville, Peachtree City and Tyrone.

These investigators are a highly specialized and motivated group of Law Enforcement officers who perform some of the most dangerous work in the Sheriff’s Office. They use the latest technology to accomplish their mission. Covert surveillance is critical not only in general investigations but in drug investigations as well. The ability to see at night, in all weather conditions, is essential. TNT uses complex and sophisticated electronic devices to gather TNTPatch1.JPGevidence against drug traffickers in Fayette County. The state-of-the-art equipment they use is made possible due to their own efforts. State and Federal laws allow the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office to use a portion of the drug funds they seize to better equip their officers. These monies are used not only by the Tactical Narcotics Team, but also by the entire Sheriff’s Office, making it one of the best-equipped law enforcement agencies in the country.

Since 1989, narcotics investigators have taken more than 38 million dollars in drug money off the streets of metro Atlanta.

In addition to the normal activities of TNT, one Special Agent is assigned offsite to the David G. Wilhelm Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) headquartered in Atlanta.

If you have information about drug activity please call 770-460-5835.  Phone calls or messages left at this number are only answered or received by Special Agents assigned to the Tactical Narcotics Team.  Callers may remain anonymous.
