In 1964, the California Narcotic Officers' Association (CNOA) was founded. CNOA has grown from a few hundred members to 7,000 strong, including local, state, and federal peace officers and prosecutors from throughout California and across the nation, as well as several foreign countries. The State of California is divided into regions, four representing Northern California and four representing Southern California.

The goals of the organization are as follows

  • To educate the membership and public of the dangers of narcotic and drug abuse.
  • To benefit the public interest in the area of narcotic and drug enforcement.
  • To promote and foster mutual cooperation between narcotic enforcement officers, their agencies, private industries and the public sector.
  • To provide an avenue for the exchange of ideas and the new techniques used by criminals and investigators
  • To conduct training seminars for narcotic officers, law enforcement officers, private industries, schools and the general public.
  • To take notice of new trends in narcotic and drug abuse.
  • To provide narcotic and drug abuse information suitable for distribution to the adult and juvenile public.
  • To study pending and propose legislation in the area of narcotics and drug abuse enforcement.
  • To keep their members and the public informed of current statutes, statute changes and judicial decisions.
  • To recommend, if necessary, correct legislation that the association considers to be in the best interest of the public in the area of narcotic and drug abuse.

CNOA provides more than 150,000 student contact hours of training for its members each year through regional and statewide training seminars including the highly successful Drug Abuse Recognition (DAR) class and the acclaimed Narcotic Unit Supervisors course. The yearly training schedule culminates with the annual training institute which attracts hundreds of narcotic enforcement officers from various local, state, federal, out of state and out of country law enforcement agencies.
