(must use a standalone internet accessible computer – not Firebird!)

Please join Supervisory Intelligence Analysts Craig Estancona, Ben Sanborn, Jay Cliff and Pat Kerner as they provide a history of the formation of the violent Medellin Cartel and the more “businesslike” Cali Cartel as well as the role of DEA Intelligence in targeting and dismantling these groups. They will also discuss the changes DEA made to more effectively target these drug trafficking organizations, including the establishment of DEA HQ drug desks to centralize responsibility and coordination. Through their research and analysis, these analysts were able to piece together information that identified the worldwide scope of Colombian Cartel activities and the identities of the primary cartel members.

Sign Language Interpretation will be provided.
