In 2021 DEA Agent James Akagi presented Randy Petee with this commemorative Federal Agent Badge Coin representing the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Bureau of Narcotics & Dangerous Drugs which celebrates the 45th year anniversary of the Joint Narcotics Task Force Program.  The coin is an acknowledgement of Mr. Petee’s tenure with the DEA in 1989 as this was the first Joint Gang Narcotics Task Force in Los Angeles, California.  

One side of the coin depicts a small gold-plated replica of the DEA Agent badge that was in use when the DEA first started experimenting with the Task Force idea in 1970. The reverse side depicts a small replica of a silver toned DEA Task Force Officer badge like the ones in use today. The rim has the “Thin Blue Line” which is a Law Enforcement symbol.  The Task Force combines federal leverage and the specialists available to the DEA with local detective’s investigative talents and detailed street knowledge of their jurisdiction which leads to highly effective narcotic enforcement investigations.
