The Special Investigations Section is an element within the Criminal Investigations Division. Investigators and analysts assigned to the Section are focused on a broad range of criminal investigations including money laundering, high level narcotics trafficking, weapons violations and terrorism related activities.

The Section maintains productive partnerships with a variety of specialized law enforcement task forces targeting major criminal activities including the South Florida Money Laundering Strike Force, the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA), and the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). The Section's investigators work closely with representatives from several local, regional and federal law enforcement agencies in planning and implementing joint operations to counter large scale criminal enterprises. The Section also has a vital role in the activities of the Southeast Florida Regional Domestic Security Task Force, which is focused on countering the threat of terrorism in the region.
