The Mid Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Drug Task Force is a federally funded task force that is responsible for the detection and apprehension of persons or groups involved in the use and sale of illegal drugs.
The Newton Police Department assigns one Police Officer to serve in task force operations with the MINE Task Force. Partial funding for this position comes from a Federal Byrne Grant. Due to staffing shortages in Primary Services, the investigator assigned to MINE is periodically re-assigned to assist with patrol.
To report possible drug activity, contact the MINE Task Force at (641) 792-7474.
