Police move to treat drug addicts
REDUCING re-offending and breaking the cycle of addiction and crime is the aim of a new service appointed and funded by Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens.
From April, Avon and Somerset will have the first single cross border arrest referral service in the country for drug and alcohol addicts.
The aim is to treat more people to reduce re-offending.
