The safe handling of alcohol or other drug affected persons by police: Best practice procedures


The broad aim of this project is to present best practice procedures for police in their endeavour to handle with safety persons who are affected by alcohol or other drugs. This entails identifying policies and procedures which are likely to minimise harm when police come into contact with alcohol or other drug affected persons. The topic "safe handling of drug affected persons by police" covers considerations of safety both to police officers acting in the ordinary course of their duties as well as to intoxicated persons handled by police.
