Scope and Content Note: 

The South Florida Task Force, formed and run by the Vice President’s office, dealt with the increase in drug trafficking in the South Florida region in the 1980s.  The Task Force worked to coordinate law enforcement between the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), and Customs.  Out of this group came numerous recommendations and changes including the need for a “drug czar.”
