METHAMPHETAMINE STRIKE FORCE

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors authorized the formation of a multi-disciplinary Methamphetamine Strike Force (MSF) in 1996. Today the MSF is composed of over 70 agencies, including local, state, and federal representatives from public health, law enforcement, judiciary, education, treatment, prevention, and intervention agencies.

Funding for San Diego County MSF facilitation and coordination is provided to CCR bySan Diego County Health and Human Services Agency, Behavioral Health Services. Our primary objectives are to:

  • deter crime through collaboration with law enforcement;
  • support healthy lifestyle choices; and
  • increase community collaboration to address meth use.

Within the MSF there are several workgroups designed to address the complex issues surrounding methamphetamine use (i.e., Meth and Families, Neighborhood Safety Workgroup and the Regional Drug Trend Committee).

The MSF produces an annual report card to provide concrete data on the scale of the methamphetamine abuse problem locally.
