Barbados to establish drug treatment court
2013-03-12 09:56:28 | (0 Comments)
The Barbadian government says it will be establishing a drug treatment court this year as it seeks to deal with a high prison population and the recurring problem of recidivism.
Home Affairs Minister, Adriel Brathwaite says the issue is proving to be a major headache for the authorities.
He says the government is continuing to explore all avenues to tackle the problem including the soon-to-be introduced Drug Treatment Court.
Brathwaite says every effort must be made to reduce the number of persons incarcerated, since this could have a negative impact on the quality of services that government is able to offer.
