Flawed perceptions on party drugs testing police

Research output: Contribution to journalNewspaper ArticleProfessional

Abstract

[Extract] Pill testing will not make our kids safer. As a former senior detective who spent more than 28 years in the frontline on the war against drugs, I am concerned by the calls for pill testing to be implemented and policing actions reduced in the wake of the NSW Coroner’s findings into the deaths of six young people at music festivals.

NSW Police Commissioner Mike Fuller is correct to resist such calls. The perception is that pill testing makes taking drugs safe for young kids. The reality is it doesn’t.
