Statement from Division of Narcotics Enforcement on Arrest of Agent

Des Moines, IOWA --- The Iowa Department of Public Safety’s (DPS) Division of Narcotics Enforcement (DNE) is aware that a Special Agent has been charged with Felonious Misconduct in Office.  Jon Borg, a 16 year veteran of the department, has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the criminal justice process as well as a separate administrative review by the department.

Recognizing SA Borg’s right to due process under the law, DNE leadership will refrain from commenting on specifics related to either the criminal or administrative investigations.

DNE Director Steve DeJoode offers his reassurance to the citizens of Iowa, “Agents with Narcotics Enforcement will continue to work with integrity and dedication in communities all across the state.  Regardless of the current controversy, we will remain focused on our primary goal: to remove drugs from our streets and minimize the devastating impact these substances have on our youth and our families.”
