The drug trade is a lucrative business, and drug traffickers find inventive ways to protect their investments. Smugglers have a variety of means available to them to move large amounts of drugs between countries, including underground tunnels, secret pockets, and even the postal service. This means law enforcement officials must be clever and creative in their pursuit of these criminals. Readers learn how police target drug traffickers and what they can do to pursue a similar career. Informative sidebars, fact boxes, and full-color photographs give a full picture of the work that law enforcement officials do to apprehend drug traffickers.
