Building Drug Intelligence Networks to Combat the Opioid Crisis in Rural Communities

The goal of the proposed project to identify and disseminate effective intelligence strategies to reduce opioid risks by enhancing responses and enforcement outcomes in rural communities. The researchers seek to develop a data driven, sampling mechanism for mentoring collaborations between narcotics law enforcement agencies that promote innovative opioid drug market intelligence models through locally-controlled initiatives in jurisdictions that lack surveillance and interdiction technologies or advanced intelligence analytics.
