Overview

This book presents an insider’s view of the federal government’s dual mission to stop the flow of illegal drugs across our borders and to prevent streams of drug money from financing drug cartels, insurgents, and terrorists. Andrews focuses on current challenges facing federal drug enforcement agencies, how our strategies for enforcement have been redirected since 9/11, and why we require different strategies along our northern and southern borders and our ports of entry. This guide’s aim is to provide an operational view of drug enforcement to policymakers, law enforcement officials, think tanks examining drug interdiction issues, and military officials who assist federal law enforcement efforts. The Border Challenge will also be of interest to students of international development and social change and the next generation of criminal justice and law enforcement officials.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
T. Michael Andrews’ Insider’s Guide is an insightful, investigative look at the danger lurking at America’s borders [and offers] fresh solutions on how to secure America in the heat of the drug war.
Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, former Washington, D.C. prosecutor, investigative journalist, and author

This book addresses the culture of insecurity telegraphed down the federal chains of command from command central in the District of Columbia. More cross jurisdictional communication, more decentralization and more local involvement will bear much low hanging inexpensive fruit in our collective effort to stop the flow of drugs across our borders.
Lawrence Seligman, former police chief for the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and Tohono O’odham Nation

T. Mike Andrews, as a Washington insider, has written an excellent book exposing the war within the ‘war on drugs,’ waged daily by federal and state law enforcement agencies in their fight for ‘turf’ . . . . This book is a must-read for anyone involved in or considering a career in law enforcement.
Barton J. Fears, State’s Prosecutor
