THIS week sees the launch of the Clandestine Laboratory Awareness program, Project CLAWs, aimed at educating people on what to do if they came across a drug lab.
Queensland Police Service has found real estate agents, property managers, utilities workers and tradespeople invaluable in identifying operating drug labs or the remnants of a drug lab once tenants had vacated.
Project CLAWs aims to provide frontline workers additional information on how to deal with a situation.
"Their role in this process is just so important," QPS Detective Superintendent Steve Holahan said.
