LNP Committed to Tackling ‘Ice’ in Redlands
The drug Ice is a problem right throughout the community, including the Redlands and the Islands.
The LNP has introduced a comprehensive plan to tackle the state’s ice epidemic.
Member for Redlands, Matt McEachan said an LNP Government would implement a five-point action plan to take ice off our streets through crime prevention, drug addiction services and strong enforcement.
“The LNP is committed to tackling drug use in communities, particularly increased ice use, to help make Queensland the safest place to live, work and raise a family,” Mr McEachan said.
“Ice use can tear families apart and sadly it is a real problem in our communities and across Queensland, but the LNP has a plan to tackle the issue with a targeted and comprehensive strategy to complement the Federal Government’s National Ice Action Plan.”
The LNP’s five-point plan includes:
1. Dob in a dealer
$1 million to encourage the community to report any information to Crime Stoppers Queensland.
2. Keeping bikie clubhouses closed
Only the LNP has the proven record of closing down criminal bikie gang clubhouses through its strong action to tackle criminal gangs.
3. Drug addiction services
Working with the federal government to deliver more treatment services, particularly in rural and regional Queensland, and targeted support through Queensland Health.
4. Law enforcement co-operation
Ensuring our state and commonwealth law enforcement agencies share intelligence and resources to tackle ICE supply and distribution across Queensland.
5. Increased prevention
Through community awareness programs targeting specific high-risk demographics.
