The Metro Major Case Unit is a multi-agency unit established to aggressively target, investigate and bring to prosecution those individuals or groups involved in the distribution of illicit narcotics and/or vice operations. The primary focus of the Unit's enforcement activities is, and will continue to be, directed towards street level drug dealers. Agents are responsible for handling all aspects of drug and vice enforcement investigations, including undercover buys, surveillance, interdictions, forced and fraudulent prescriptions, and executing search warrants. The Narcotics Division has maintained both professional and personal relationships with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies creating a solid bond of cooperation in the fight against illicit drugs at all levels.
If you have any information related to the distribution of illicit drugs or know of an illegal vice operation, please send us a TIP. You may remain anonymous.

The Narcotics Unit is involved in long-term undercover drug transactions that require extended and detailed investigations which generally result in the arrest of major traffickers and the confiscation of substantial quantities of contraband. The unit targets drug dealers who often pose immediate threats to the safety and welfare of individual neighborhoods. Many investigations lead into sophisticated financial and conspiracy investigations relating to narcotics trafficking.
The Vice unit is responsible for conducting investigations relating to illegal gambling, street prostitution, escort services and alcoholic beverage law violations.
The Charleston County Sheriff's Office has joined forces with the Drug Enforcement Administration to form a multi-agency, multi jurisdictional Task Force. The goals and objectives are to investigate, identify, apprehend and successfully prosecute those persons who violate the laws of the State of South Carolina and the United States by trafficking in the manufacture, distribution and sale of illegal narcotics and other dangerous drugs. Currently, this Task Force has eight (8) member agencies which include the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration, the Charleston County Sheriff's Office, the Isle of Palms Police Department, South Carolina Highway Patrol, South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division, Summerville Police Department, the Goose Creek Police Department, and the Berkley County Sheriff's Office.
