Mobile Enforcement Teams (METs) Law and Legal Definition

Mobile Enforcement Teams (METs) are specialized squads designed as a support service dedicated to attacking and dismantling drug trafficking and urban violence. At the request of a police chief, sheriff, or district attorney, a MET will be deployed to work along with local police to dislodge violent drug offenders from the community. In coordination with state and local agencies, a MET will conduct surveillance, collect intelligence, cultivate investigations, obtain indictments and help with arrests, before returning to its base-division.
