The Texas Narcotic Officers' Association is dedicated to providing high quality training for law enforcement professionals. Membership in TNOA is not exclusive to narcotic officers. Our members include: local, state, and federal peace officers, reserve officers, prosecutors, law enforcement personnel, and other national and international associates. Any officer who has an interest in the drug problem in the state of Texas is welcome to join TNOA.

On May 5, 1970, by virtue of State Charter, State of Texas, the Texas Narcotic Officers Association was organized. Meetings were held by city, county, state and federal law enforcement officers, whose primary duty was the enforcement of drug-related laws in the State of Tex as. For over 43 years, TNOA 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.

TNOA is divided into five Regional Chapters organized according to geographical regions, to wit: North, South, East, West, and Central. Each Regional Chapter elects one Chapter Vice President and two Chapter Directors. Each Regional Chapter holds quarterly Regional meetings. The election of the Chapter Vice President and the Chapter Directors are held at the last quarterly meeting prior to the Annual Training Conference.  TNOA holds one annual meeting that is designated as the Annual Training Conference. 

The Executive Board of the Association consists of the President, the Executive Vice President, the First Vice President, five Chapter Vice Presidents, ten Chapter Directors, the Journal Editor/Historian/Webmaster, the State Training Officer, a Conference Coordinator and the Executive Director.
