Laws and Regulations
The Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement (AgLaw) enforces laws governing businesses regulated by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS). We protect consumers from unfair and deceptive trade practices, protect Florida’s agriculture industry from theft and other crimes, and safeguard the wholesomeness of food and other consumer products.
We operate 23 agricultural inspection stations on 19 highways going into and out of Florida. Officers conduct vehicle inspections 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to ensure the safety of Florida's food supply. Officers are on the lookout for unsafe or unwholesome food that could make people sick, and plant and animal pests and diseases that could harm the state’s $100 billion agriculture industry.
AgLaw investigates crimes involving agriculture and those occurring on property owned or operated by FDACS. We help maintain domestic security, participating in all seven regional Domestic Security Task Forces statewide. We partner with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies and help coordinate the Domestic Marijuana Eradication Task Force.
