The MBN provides investigative and enforcement services to local and federal law enforcement agencies throughout the state. In addition to conducting general and special investigations, the bureau provides specialized training to law enforcement throughout Mississippi and surrounding states. Numerous programs are operational and the latest technological advancements in drug enforcement are in place to combat the misuse and distribution of controlled substances. You will notice that we have provided a number of links to various websites that should serve to educate parents, teachers and students about the usage and effects of drugs.

These employees are strategically located throughout the state and is divided into three regions – Northern, Central and Southern. A Major commands each region.
