The association was formed in March, 2000 by a handful of veteran narcotics investigators from around the state. These investigators long recognized the need for an organization dedicated to the needs of Narcotics Enforcement. Their goals were to form an organization to provide support and improvements to law enforcement's efforts in the area of drug enforcement. They wanted to build an association that would provide cutting edge training for its members, promote and facilitate narcotics intelligence exchange and to provide a medium for sharing of resources between law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Georgia.
G.N.O.A. is accomplishing these goals. From the handful of charter members who put the organization together in March of 2000, the membership has grown to well over 100. The Georgia Narcotics Officers Association held its first training in October of 2000 at no cost to attendees.
The Drug Summit, as it was called, was a great success bringing together Narcotics Investigators from around the state representing City, County, State and Federal law enforcement agencies.
There is still a long way to go but the organization is working hard everyday to improve and grow.
