The Vermont State Police Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement Team (CLET) is composed of Troopers and Sergeants from across the state. Each member attends the Drug Enforcement Administration’s State and Local Clandestine Laboratory Certification School (SALC) and the Clandestine Laboratory Site Safety School in Quantico, VA. Some experienced members complete Level A Hazmat certification. The team is required to meet OSHA standards and maintain DEA certifications.
The CLET responds to methamphetamine manufacturing labs and high-risk drug manufacturing and packaging locations as well as provides training for First Responders throughout the state.
The CLET works closely with DEA, Vermont State Haz Mat, and the Vermont National Guard 15th Civil Support Team.
If you suspect a meth lab:
- Leave the area and do not touch anything
- Do not open any coolers, containers, boxes, bottles, or doors
- Do not turn on, or off, any electrical devices
- Call 911 immediately
