What we do

The aim of our service is to reduce crime and improve lives. 

How Do We Do This?

We do this by increasing the numbers of Criminal Justice service users in contact with drug and alcohol treatment services, through providing mandatory assessments for those detainees who have tested positive under the Test on Arrest scheme within police custody.

Dependant on results of assessments and need, referrals and signpositing will be made to suitable local services.

We also offer voluntary assessments to all other detainee’s in custody.

Referrals cannot be made into this service. The service is accessed on arrest at police custody suites.
