"This paper will explore measurements of effectiveness for the Department of Defense's current and projected roles in providing support to Drug Law Enforcement Agencies in counternarcotics operations. The scope of this study is a rather broad look at capabilities of the Department of Defense; including not only the active components, but also Reserve and National Guard contributions. The paper begins with a brief introduction into factors which led to the Department of Defense's involvement in counternarcotics. The second section provides a detailed discussion of studies that clarify and amplify the suggested measures in the recommendation section. Included is information from discussions with Commander in Chief Southern Command, the Deputy Commander of Joint Task Force Six, representatives of the National Guard Bureau and the various services, and the results of the surveys with the Governors, National Guard Adjutants General, and drug law enforcement agencies. The last section is a list of recommended methods of measuring the Department of Defense counternarcotics support effectiveness."
