Policing implications of petrol sniffing and other inhalant misuse in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' communities

 

Overview

This research project aimed to define best practice in understanding the law enforcement sector concerning the extent and nature of petrol sniffing and other inhalant use by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Key consultations in urban, rural and remote locations around Australia were carried out, along with an extensive literature review. The result of the project was a report written and submitted to the National Drug Law Enforcement Research Fund who funded the research project.
