Police (Amendment No.2) Regulations 2012 come into force

Implementation date: 1 April 2012

The Regulations amend the rules on the testing of members of the police force for the consumption of controlled drugs or alcohol. The changes allow for the testing of any member of a police force as part of a routine random testing regime, rather than the testing of members in particular categories or particular circumstances. The Regulations can be viewed on the UK legislation website.
