"The California Narcotic Officers' Association is a non-profit, corporation dedicated to providing high
quality training for law enforcement professionals. Since 1964, CNOA has grown to become the largest
non-profit Training Association in California, with nearly 7,000 members. Our members include: local,
state, and federal peace officers, prosecutors, law enforcement personnel, and other national and
For over 35 years, CNOA has offered the finest training available in all areas of narcotic enforcement
activities to the dedicated men and women who are our first line of defense against the proliferation of
illegal drugs in our state. This web site is regularly updated to provide another avenue for the exchange of
information and new techniques to all those who are interested in the fight against drug abuse.
The CNOA Legislative Committee tracks all laws that impact our efforts and lobbies the legislature when
necessary. The Narcotic Educational Foundation of America (NEFA), a non-profit educational
organization, furnishes free anti-drug information to the general public as well as schools and other
organizations. Through ongoing fund raising efforts and contributions, we have been able to establish a
Survivors Memorial Fund that provides immediate financial assistance to the families of all California law
enforcement officers who have surrendered their lives in the line of duty.
CNOA provides over 100,000 student contact hours each year and reaches out to thousands of people
through regional and state training seminars, and the annual CNOA training institute. CNOA and it's
members believe outstanding efforts in narcotic law enforcement and the fight against drug abuse should
not go unrecognized. As a result, CNOA has established an Awards Committee focused on recognizing
those individuals deserving of special recognition awards."
CNOA is divided into eight (8) regions which encompass the entire State of California.
