Steve Pratt has put out a media release noting that of 65 reported drink spikings in the last year (down from 80 in the previous year) four (with possibly one more to come) had been confirmed.
8% genuine seems about right. Moving on Steve has a plan to combat this scourge, one our police readers might be quite keen on.
“More undercover police operations are needed to apprehend drink spiking offenders; such an operation serves a dual purpose if any other offence is committed during the surveillance.”
Triple purpose if our diligent constabulary are to maintain a convinving cover surely? Steve’s been trying to ingratiate himself with the boys and girls in blue for a long time but has he hit on a winner here?
