Dedicated police “meth transport teams” will target supply routes into Western Australia in a bid to stop the flow of drugs into the state.

Police Minister Liza Harvey made the announcement on Sunday as part of the state government’s wider meth enforcement action plan that strives to stamp out the drug from WA streets.

WA has the highest methamphetamine use at 3.8 per cent of the population over the age of 14, compared to the national average of 2.1 per cent.

Ms Harvey said meth teams within the organised crime squad would also target drug dealers in metropolitan and regional WA.
