A year ago I started a conversation with NSW police about having a negative Drug Swipe Test returned to me. This has not happened to me yet but I wanted a legal response so that I was prepared.
The legislation with regards to Drug Swipe tests in NSW’s only states what must happen with a positive result, I have no concerns about this aspect.
There is no legislative mention of negative results.
After 5 months of getting no where with the police I enlisted the help of my local member.
He sent a request for a response to the Police Minister in NSW.
We still had no response by 10 Feb 2020, so I again asked my local members to follow it up.
Finally received a response but it was not what I expected.
“Further to our earlier correspondence regarding drug wipe tests, I have received the
attached letter from the Parliamentary Secretary for Police and Justice, Mr Mark Taylor, in
response to my enquiry on your behalf.
Mr Taylor advises that drug wipes are purchased by the NSW Police Force and remain
their property at all times.
Thank you for taking the time to bring this matter to my attention.”
I thought I paid for Government services through my taxes.
Just to be flippant, If I get shot by police do I have to give the bullet back?
What about other state services?
