    Default Drug testing cops?

    Police consider drug testing key cops
    03 November 2006

    Police are to consider drug testing officers to ensure the public can have faith that the force remains "clean".

    It is also looking at implementing rehabilitation programme and a structure which would allow the identification and management of staff who are abusing alcohol.
    Police human resources general manager Wayne Annan said today they wanted to assure the public that police were drug-free.

    "The level of drugs in New Zealand has increased significantly over the last number of years," he told National Radio. "We recruit people from all parts of society and we want to assure ourselves that the general increase in drug use in New Zealand is not coming into (the) police."

    He said police HQ had agreed with the officers' union, the Police Association, to explore which officers should be drug tested.

    It is likely those subject to testing will be working in areas where the use of drugs will impair an officer's ability to do their job, such as when they are using firearms or carrying out car chases.

    Sounds reasonable.
