Kingpin Lecture posterFormer Administrator Robert C. Bonner joins us in the first installment of the Drug Enforcement Administration Museum & Visitor Center’s fiscal year 2021 lecture series Disrupt, Dismantle, and Destroy. Mr. Bonner will speak about leading DEA as it put the “Kingpin Strategy” into place in the early1990s to combat violent and powerful drug trafficking organizations.

The Kingpin Strategy attacks drug organizations’ most vulnerable areas-leadership, production, distribution, and assets. DEA designed the strategy to weaken, destroy, and dismantle major drug trafficking organizations.

Speaking alongside Administrator Bonner is retired DEA Regional Director Jay Bergman. Mr. Bergman was the longest-serving regional director in the history of DEA, and was stationed in Bogota, Colombia, from 2009-2015. He will talk about the evolution and success of the strategy during his time in Colombia.

Join Josh Edmundson, Curator of Education for the DEA Museum & Visitor’s Center in this first in a series of lectures that will complement the newly-renovated museum’s first changing exhibit Disrupt, Dismantle, and Destroy, which features objects from the collection that relate to DEA's Kingpin Strategy.
