ODALE was abolished on July 1,1973, by Presidential Reorganization Plan No. 2 of 1973 and ''those Federal operations designed to attack narcotics traffic at the street level in cooperation with local authorities'' were transferred to the newly established Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The ODALE program was redesignated as DEA's State and Local Task Force program. ODALE's Deputy Director John R. Bartels, Jr., became the first administrator of the DEA.
