The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) van came to the Knox County Middle School as part of Operation UNITE. The program, created by Congress with the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, provides Federal funding and support to state and local law enforcements.

There are currently 28 HIDTAs, covering roughly 16 percent of all counties in the United States, or 60 percent of the U.S. population. Although there are 733 initiatives within HIDTA, today’s activities in the middle school gym centered around impaired operation of vehicles.
