The 3rd Annual National Interdiction Conference
Imagine an Interdiction Training Conference where the nation’s top networking and training programs come together. It’s happening in Nashville, Tennessee from March 30 to April 4, 2014.
The 3rd Annual National Interdiction Conference is being brought to you by National Criminal Enforcement Association [NCEA] in cooperation with the Tennessee Highway Patrol, and the Desert Snow Training Program.
Tennessee Highway Patrol – The Tennessee Highway Patrol [THP] came into existence in 1929 and is responsible for enforcing all federal and state laws relating to traffic on the state's federal and state highways. The agency was created to protect the lives, property, and constitutional rights of people in Tennessee. The THP is a division of the Tennessee Department of Safety.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol provides assistance to motorists who need help. It investigates traffic accidents involving property damage, personal injury, or death. The agency works with prosecutors in the prosecution of cases in which the use of drugs or alcohol contributed to accidents causing personal injury or fatalities. In addition to traffic law enforcement, the Tennessee Highway Patrol has responsibility in criminal interdiction, which involves the suppression of narcotics on the state's roads and highways, including Interstate Highways.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol is excited to bring this conference to their state and to show those in attendance their “All Crimes” approach to criminal interdiction.

NCEA – The National Criminal Enforcement Association began in 1999 and is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on training law enforcement officers in the areas of criminal interdiction and beyond. Approximately 10 years ago NCEA began hosting an annual interdiction “Winter Conference”, which had become one of the largest attended each year. These conferences evolved into the culmination of the “National Interdiction Conference.”

DIAP - The Drug Interdiction Assistance Program [DIAP] was established in 1988 and is a specialized unit of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration [FMCSA]. The program was established to assist law enforcement officials in the detection and apprehension of transporters hauling illegal contraband and/or users of illicit drugs involving commercial motor vehicles. Commercial Motor Vehicle interdiction training will be provided at the NIC by the Drug interdiction Assistance Program Federal Government’s Drug Interdiction Assistance Program [DIAP].
Since its inception, members of the DIAP team have trained well over 140,000 federal, state, and local officials in commercial vehicle drug and criminal interdiction tactics and techniques.
