The Narcotics Division is charged with the broad enforcement of all narcotic laws and vice related offenses including gambling. This also includes state and applicable federal laws. Investigations include street level, mid-level and upper-level narcotic crimes through a wide range of investigative techniques. These cases, while time consuming and labor intensive, substantially reduce narcotics trafficking activity within our community. A typical investigation routinely generates large seizures and forfeitures, enhanced prosecution and sentencing, and a wealth of criminal intelligence that is valuable to the law enforcement community.

The Forsyth County Drug Task Force (FCDTF) was signed into existence in December 2020. The Kernersville Police Department, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, the Winston-Salem Police Department, and the King Police Department combined their narcotic investigation divisions to create a county wide task force.

Anyone with information related to this type of investigation or regarding narcotic activity located anywhere in Forsyth County is encouraged to reach out to the FCDTF. Anonymously text information, photos, and/or a video via Text-A-Tip to (336) 920-8477; or anonymously call Crime Stoppers at (336) 727-2800 for English or (336) 728-3904 for Spanish.
