Welcome to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division website. My name is Captain Eric Coleman and I have been a resident of central Palm Beach County since 1973. Since my law enforcement career began in 1985, I have had the pleasure of serving in a variety of assignments throughout the county at every rank to include: Patrol, Crime Property, Homicide, Crimes against Children/Sex Crimes, Court Services, Internal Affairs and Narcotics.
The Narcotics Division is responsible for enforcing the controlled substances laws and regulations of the United States and the State of Florida. We work very closely with our local, state and federal partners to aggressively investigate those organizations and their members involved in the growth, manufacture, or distribution of controlled substances. We also recommend and support non-enforcement programs aimed at reducing the availability of illicit controlled substances.
The division is also home to the Public Assistance Fraud Taskforce. The PAF task force is comprised of local, state and federal agents tasked with investigating fraud involving public assistance funds.
Those of us in public safety realize each day brings new challenges; however, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is committed to working with our elected officials, community leaders, and the citizens of this great community to ensure that Palm Beach County remains a safe environment in which to live, work, and raise our families.
