Policing responses to substance misuse in rural and remote indigenous communities


The Workshop focused on policing responses to alcohol and other substance misuse problems in rural and remote Indigenous communities. The purpose of this report is to provide a vehicle to help disseminate the learning that occurred at the workshop (including the research itself) and to highlight further issues that the NDLERF Board of Management may wish to consider. An important feature of the workshop was that it acted as a good demonstration of the process of operationalising research. This involved taking NDLERF research findings and applying them to situations that were of direct relevance to the workshop participants, using a systematic framework that was also developed as part of NDLERF-funded research.
