Drug Task Force

The Sheriff’s Office has a drug enforcement unit called the Gore Range Narcotics Interdiction Team (GRANITE) that is composed of peace officers from the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office and the Vail Police Department in an effort to get dangerous drugs off the streets in our community. These highly trained drug investigators work with local and federal law enforcement agencies to arrest drug dealers throughout the county. 

Numerous studies conducted by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) found that drugs and crime are interrelated. The NIJ has found that drug addicts have a stronger tendency to commit crimes. Gore Range Narcotics Interdiction Team Received Task Force of the Year Award for 2016!!  The award recognized the collaborative efforts of all law enforcement agencies throughout Eagle County, including the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, Eagle Police Department, Avon Police Department, and the Vail Police Department, in making a local impact on felonious drug trafficking in the community as well as helping stem the tide of criminal offenses related to drug use.  

Gore Range Narcotics Interdiction Team (GRANITE) is composed of peace officers from the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office and the Vail Police Department in an effort to get dangerous drugs off the streets in our community.  If you have information related to illegal drug activity in your community, please contact GRANITE at (970) 479-2201, you can remain anonymous.
