FAQ's

Application for Counterdrug Participation

Members wishing to participate must have been a CAP member for a minimum of 2 years.

The application process starts with the member submitting a form 83 to the Wing CDO. This document is reviewed and approved by the Wing Commander and forwarded to National for FBI review and National approval. This process takes approximately 8 weeks.

The Form 83 is to be a computer filled on a single sheet (double-sided) with a wet signature.

Additional pages may be attached if explanations for answers are required.

The completed form should be mailed to the Wing Counterdrug Officer:

Lt Col Jim Hottois
80537 Avenida Camarillo
Indio, CA  92203
 
Once approved, the approval will show up on the members' SQTR. The member then needs to take the online training and test. Once passed, the member's SQTR will show as qualified, and the member is cleared to participate on CD missions.
Member Participation

The Group Counterdrug Officer coordinates USBP mission staffing at Imperial. A Group rotation schedule is established at the beginning of the year, and members wishing to participate should contact their Group CD Officer for assigned operations dates. Crews are generally a pilot and one or two observers or scanners.
The Counterdrug Officer selects USCG and DEA mission crews for the specific operation.
