The Major Drug Unit (MDU) prosecutes cases involving large quantities of controlled substances (primarily cocaine, heroin, fentanyl and other dangerous drugs) and the organizations that control narcotics operations. The prosecutors work closely with federal, state and city law enforcement agencies investigating high-level narcotics traffickers. MDU assistant prosecutors oversee these cases from beginning to end.
These cases not only involve large quantities of narcotics, but also enormous amounts of cash and dangerous weaponry. The defendants in these cases are usually leaders or high-ranking members of these complex and organized criminal enterprises.
