2016/17 WA POLICE WASTE WATER ANALYSIS PROJECT RESULTS

Western Australia Police on Monday, 12/06/2017 05:49 AEST

June 11, 2017

The latest test results from the WA Police Waste Water Analysis Project have shown significant decreases in the level of methylamphetamine use in Perth and selected regional centres so far in the 2016/17 Financial Year.

Compared to the average meth consumption levels recorded in 2015/16, the latest results from April 2017 indicate a 26.6% decrease in Perth and a 41.5% decrease in Bunbury, which previously had the highest rate of meth consumption at sites tested in WA.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Pryce Scanlan, from the State Crime Portfolio, described the results as “promising”, but warned there was no cause for celebration or complacency as meth still posed a massive challenge for government and the community, with significant impacts for law enforcement, health, child and family services.

“The trend downwards in the past three test periods is obviously pleasing, but the sobering reality is WA still has a projected annual meth habit of 1.54 tonnes, with an estimated street value of just over $1.5 billion,” Acting Assistant Commissioner Scanlan said.
