Expansion of Operation Crystal Shield

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced the expansion of Operation Crystal Shield. This expansion includes the designation of two additional methamphetamine “transportation hubs” in 2021. Through this effort, the DEA is attacking the entire supply chain, locating and seizing meth shipments before they are broken down and trafficked into communities and neighborhoods. The Chicago Field Division and the San Francisco Field Division have been added to this initiative, along with the nine DEA field divisions originally selected to participate. In addition, operational resources have been increased by 50 percent to attack the meth threat and the violence which accompanies it.
