The Special Operations Division consists of several smaller specialized units. These units are trained to deal with specific types of criminal activity:
The Narcotics Unit is a joint effort between the Lexington City Police Department and the Henderson County Sheriff's Department. The Unit is responsible for acquiring and developing information regarding the manufacture, sale, and distribution of narcotics in the City and County and monitoring gang activity. In addition to gang surveillance and investigation, the unit also provides several community resources and outreach programs designed to prevent gangs and gang violence.
