Year Inducted: 2014
Darrell Weaver, Director of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, was commissioned as an Agent for OBNDD in 1987. He held numerous investigatory positions throughout the state.
In 1996, Weaver was promoted to Agent-in-Charge of the Oklahoma City Enforcement Unit and directed the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Intelligence Center for Oklahoma.
Under his direction, the HIDTA developed and coordinated the annual Drug Threat Assessment for the state of Oklahoma. Weaver also implemented the state wide Deconfliction Center utilized by the majority of all federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
Under Weaver’s leadership, the OBNDD has taken a significant role in combatting prescription drug issues in the state. He guided key legislation regarding prescription drug abuse, and supervised the “Safe Trip for Scripts” program which has placed more than 130 permanent disposal containers for unwanted and unused medications at little or no cost to the state. “Take Back” boxes are in every Oklahoma county and have resulted in the collection and destruction of more than 20 tons of potentially abused medications. Because of these efforts, Weaver and OBNDD’s partners in disposal, Covanta Energy of Tulsa, recently shared the 2012 Henry Bellmon Sustainability Award presented by the Sustainable Tulsa Foundation and the Tulsa Southside Rotary Club.
A significant number of changes in the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics were implemented under Weaver’s leadership. Under his guidance, he acquired two state owned buildings giving the OBNDD its first permanent home which includes a 60-seat classroom used by Oklahoma law enforcement and medical personnel.
Weaver is a long-time elected trustee of the Oklahoma Law Enforcement Retirement System, a member of the Council on Law Enforcement Education & Training, and a member of the Oklahoma Justice Assistant Grant board. He serves on the Oklahoma State University law enforcement advisement committee.
Weaver is a graduate of the FBI National Academy 199th Session.
