Department of Defense

Broad spectrum of interactions: defense readiness and interoperability, cyber security, research and development, counternarcotics, disaster preparedness and emergency response, training, logistics, and acquisitions.

The Interdiction Committee (TIC)

TIC is a statutorily-mandated interagency body of over 25 federal departments, agencies, offices, and components. TIC discusses and resolves issues related to the coordination, oversight, and integration of international, border, and domestic drug interdiction and counter-network efforts. These efforts support the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) in executing the President’s National Drug Control Strategy (NDCS). By developing interagency recommendations that incorporate various facets of national power, TIC supports the NDCS and provides advice, situational awareness, and expertise to ONDCP on trafficking activities that threaten U.S. interests.
