El Dorado Task Force

Established in 1992, El Dorado Task Forces (EDTF) have become a symbol of success in combating money laundering and financial crime.

With billions of dollars seized and thousands of arrests, HSI-led EDTFs have disrupted and dismantled many of the world’s most sophisticated transnational criminal organizations.

EDTF’s mission is to disrupt and dismantle transnational money laundering organizations by conducting aggressive proactive investigations; actively engaging private sector partners; and leveraging federal and state laws and regulations. Through the dedication and professionalism of a highly trained workforce incorporating federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies with anti-money laundering (AML) responsibilities, EDTFs are the leading AML investigative entities in the nation.
