Keeping tabs on labs

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.

For more information on Project CLAWs, visit the QPS website on police.qld.gov.au.

To report valid suspicions anonymously, phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
