New Zealand Arrestee Drug Use Monitoring report 2011
The aim of the New Zealand Arrestee Drug Use Monitoring (NZ‐ADUM) is to monitor trends in alcohol and drug use among police detainees and investigate the role alcohol and drug use plays in criminal offending. The 2011 NZ‐ADUM interviewed 828 police detainees at Whangarei, Auckland Central, Wellington Central and Christchurch Central police watch houses about their drug use and criminal offending.
This report presents the findings from the 2011 NZADUM and compares them with the previous 2010 NZ‐ADUM wave. The completion of the interviews at the Christchurch site in 2011 was delayed by six months due to the earthquakes there and this delayed the overall completion of the study.
