DRUG use and its connection to crime in WA continues to be a significant concern to police, says Mirrabooka officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Neil Morton-Smith.
Despite the operational restructure in recent years, he said WA Police remained committed to “interrupting supply” of methamphetamine into the state, as well as reducing its impact on the community through education.
As a member of the Stirling Local Drug Action Group, Mirrabooka police work with non-government organisations including the Mental Health Commission.
Although the use of meth in WA was a concern, Sgt Morton-Smith said drug use of any kind had direct harm to the person’s health and potentially behaviour.
“The impact on families and the community is also well-documented and varies significantly,” he said.
