Drugs - A Growing Problem?

Latest Police Statistics Suggest Drug Use May Be Expanding.


Bali News: Drugs - A Growing Problem?
Click Image to Enlarge

(7/20/2002)

Latest statistics released by the Provincial Police Headquarters in Bali demonstrate, depending on how they are interpreted, either an epidemic of drug abuse on the island or a more vigilant police enforcement underway against drug offenders.

Interim figures through the end of June 2002, show a total of 128 arrests on narcotic related charges. If the current rate of arrests holds constant for the remainder of the year, police will have arrested 11 percent more drug suspects than in 2001 when a total of 231 narcotic arrests were recorded for the entire year.

Perhaps more remarkable, this projected level of arrests for drug crimes in 2002 would represent a 449% increase in the level of drug-related arrests over the past 5 years.

Additional data provided by the police also indicate a dramatic increase in hard drug usage as measured by the quantities of Heroin seized by Bali's police authorities.
