PARTIES The parties to this agreement are the cities of Aubum, Kent, Renton, Tukwila, Port of Seattle, and Federal Way. The Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team is assigned to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Task Force. 11. AUTHORITY This Agreement is entered into pursuant to Chapters 10.93, 39.34, and 53.08 of the Revised Code of Washington. III. PURPOSE The parties desire to establish and maintain a multi jurisdictional team to effectively investiga#e and enforce the laws relating to controlled substances. IV. FORMATION There is hereby established a multi jurisdictional team to be hereafter known as the Valley Narcotics Enforcel�nent Team ("VNET"), the members of which shall be the cities of Auburn, Kent, Renton, Tukwila, Port of Seattle and Federal Way. VNET has been in existence for some time and this Agreement establishes an Inter-local Agreement between the listed jurisdictions. The future admission or elimination of a jurisdiction as a member of VNET may be accomplished by an addendum to this agreement. V. STATEAAENT OF PROBLEM The municipalities within the Puget Sound area have experienced an increase in urbanization, and in population densities. The ability to address drug abuse and the crimes associated to controlled substances has stretched the resources of individual police department specialty units. Law enforcement efforts directed at dealing with narcotic issues have, for the most part, been aonducted by law enforcement agencies working independently. A multi jurisdictional effort to handle specific and complicated narcotic investigations will result in more effective pooling of personnel, improved utilization of funds, reduced duplication of equipment, improved training, development of specialized expertise, Valley Narcotics Enforcement Team Interlocal Agreement 1 June 17, 2009 and increased utilization/application of a combined narcotic enforcement team. The results will be improved services for aU of the participating entities, increased safety for officers and the community, and improved cost effectiveness. VI. TEAM OBJECTI1lES The assigned person�el from each participating agency will form a combined investigation team ("Team") through VNET.
