Narcotics Control Commission (NACOC), leading Ghana's fight against narcotics

Stories and facts

The establishment of the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB), now known as the Narcotics Control Commission (NACOC), in November 1990 marked a significant milestone in Ghana's battle against drug abuse.

Tasked with crafting and enforcing narcotics laws, NACOC focuses on preventing drug use and regulating substance import and export. Its mandate spans enforcement, education, and rehabilitation services, with operations conducted at various entry points nationwide.

Collaborating internationally, initiatives like Operation West Bridge have led to significant interceptions, while comprehensive training and intelligence networks bolster its success. However, NACOC faces challenges like resource inadequacy and personnel remuneration. Nevertheless, its commitment to combating narcotics through enforcement, education, and global cooperation underscores its vital role in safeguarding Ghana's communities.
