Formed in late 2018, the Special Investigations Illicit Marijuana (SIIM) is staffed by 12 investigative agents and one analyst. The SIIM has four primary objectives:
Expand local law enforcement’s ability – specifically in rural jurisdictions of Colorado – to address, investigate and prevent the cultivation, distribution and exportation of illicit marijuana
Ensure the quality of life of Colorado residents and visitors
Protect the legal and regulated marijuana industry
Protect the environment from harmful and illegal growing operations that cause destructive and permanent damage
The SIIM does not respond to requests for assistance from the general public. Those calls should be directed to local law enforcement agencies in the appropriate jurisdiction.
