Tim Kaine on Drugs

Democratic Governor (VA)


Anti-drug and anti-gang units in State Police

Tim Kaine supports giving the State Police the resources they need to combat gang violence, drug dealers and terrorism. As Governor, Kaine would expand the Virginia State Police’s Counter-Terrorism and Criminal Interdiction Units to fight gang and drug activity in local communities and investigate and interrupt terrorist cells.

The State Police have highly trained specialists, but they also split their time between special assignments and regular highway patrol duties. These specially trained officers are the ones working with localities in task forces that fight gangs and drug rings and we rely heavily upon them to prevent and respond to acts of terrorism. While they are always ready to take on special projects, they leave holes when they are pulled off to serve on task forces. The State Police should have sufficient manpower to have both full-time specialists and a strong regular force.
