Welcome to the Official Iowa Narcotics Officers' Association Website
***2021 ANNUAL CONFERENCE DATES MOVED TO JUNE 14-17, 2021 ***
***MORE INFORMATION IN ANNUAL CONFERENCE LINK***
The INOA was formed in 2004 by numerous law enforcement officers throughout the State of Iowa. In 2005, the INOA hosted its inaugural training conference in Johnston, Iowa. To date the association is made up of over 460 members ranging from officers, agents, intelligence analysts, prosecutors and others who work in law enforcement career fields. The Association recognizes that narcotics, drugs, and other addictive substances are, and have been, one of the greatest internal threats to the citizens of the United States, the State of Iowa, and each of our communities. The purpose of the Iowa Narcotics Officers' Association is to provide education and training and to facilitate the establishment and growth of partnerships and communication between members.
We hope you utilize some of the information posted on this website and remember to check back often to view notices of training sessions around the state being sponsored by the INOA.
Your INOA Board is pleased to present to you the Members Only Section of this website. We hope that the information contained in this section will be useful to our members.
What You Don't See is a mobile training trailer designed to simulate a "typical" teenager's bedroom, complete with all the paraphernalia and imagery one would expect to see but not to necessarily understand from today's younger culture. In the room, attendees will learn the meaning of signs, symbols & clothing, common hiding spots and other precursors that can be a tip to otherwise unsuspecting parents.
