An environmental scan on alcohol and other drug issues facing law enforcement in Australia 2010


This is the second alcohol and other drug environmental scan undertaken for the law enforcement sector in Australia. The aims of this environmental scan were to: identify the key alcohol and other drug issues impacting on the law enforcement sector at present and into the future; identify ways in which the law enforcement sector might best position itself to meet future challenges and to maximise its contribution to Australia's National Drug Strategy; provide a 'one stop shop' for operational and policy law enforcement staff to source the most up to date information available on a range of alcohol and other drug issues; and provide some guidance to the NDLERF Board of Management in relation to its future general funding priority areas and to make some specific recommendations concerning potential future projects. An extensive literature review was undertaken focussing predominantly on the post-2004 period.
