Drug Interdiction Assistance Program
Established in 1988, FMCSA’s Drug Interdiction Assistance Program (DIAP) assists law enforcement officials in detecting and apprehending transporters and/or users of illicit drugs involving a commercial motor vehicle (CMV). The program focuses on the development and distribution of criminal interdiction techniques to rapidly identify in-transit CMVs and drivers engaged in criminal activity.
Since inception, DIAP team members have trained approximately 170,000 Federal, State, and local officials in CMV drug and criminal interdiction tactics and techniques. National studies and surveys have shown that illicit drug seizures, impaired driver arrests, and criminal apprehensions routinely increase substantially after DIAP training.
DIAP training includes all training materials, delivered by certified instructors, tailored to meet your agency’s specific needs. Training is provided to law enforcement agencies free of charge, there is no instructor honorarium or any other fee associated with approved training.
Along with training, we offer the following support:
- Investigative/information requests
- Consulting on transportation security initiatives
- Integrating effective technology
- Advice on discretionary funding
- Technical assistance
