ational is allocating money seized from drug crime to government agencies to directly fight crime and drug addiction.
As part of our 2009 Methamphetamine Action Plan, we’ve received about $8.3 million since the Criminal Proceeds (Recovery) Act came into force – delivering on our commitment that money taken from those who profit from drug crime, would be used to reduce the harm from drugs.
We’re serious about tackling drug crime, and the harm it causes in our communities. This is part of our priority to deliver better public services.
Key agencies will now bid for funding for drug treatment projects and law enforcement initiatives, ensuring our law enforcement agencies can continue to break drug supply chains and tackle organised crime.
