The Florida Narcotic Officers' Association was formed on July 18, 1992, by a group of law enforcement officers that were involved in the Florida Sheriff's Association Statewide Crack Cocaine Task Force.
Since it's inception FNOA has increased it's membership exponentially to a group of diverse, conscientious law enforcement investigators to include municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement officers both throughout the State of Florida and beyond.
The FNOA has become one of the most sought after organizations in the State of Florida and beyond for training of narcotic officers . FNOA, throughout the year, conducts regional training seminars in different areas of the state for free or minimal charge to investigators or their agencies . Annually, FNOA presents a training conference that has developed into the premiere event of the year and is widely used by state, local and federal agencies as a training venue for their officers and agents.
The goals of the FNOA are not only to provide the best in training available, but also to promote multi-agency contacts among narcotic agents around the state and beyond and to promote anti-drug awareness.
2020 Conference Cancellation
Due to the uncertainty and the current and continued restrictions caused by COVID-19, the FNOA board made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Conference. The conference was scheduled for July 13, 2020 - July 17, 2020, however the hotel and Disney properties were just starting to open and in phases so we felt this was the best decision at the time. COVID has also had a major impact on the hotel and hospitality industry, as many organizations have also had to make the same difficult decisions to cancel their meetings/conferences during this uncertain time. Therefore, the FNOA Board continued their current relationship with the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Resort and signed our 2021 contract. The 2021 Conference will take place from July 12, 2021 - July 15, 2021, many of our scheduled vendors kept their vendor contracts for 2021 and several agencies also kept their registrations active for 2021 conference. We are confident that we will all get through these uncertain times together and look forward to seeing everyone in July 2021!
