PDF (Drug courts report 5) - Published Version

The Working Group on a Courts Commission was established in October 1995. In this, its fifth report, the issue of drug abuse was dealt with, as was the high rate of crime committed by drug addicts. The term 'drug court' was defined, following the formula used in the United States. Drug courts in the United States, Germany, Sweden, Britain and Australia were described and reviewed, as was the current Irish system and infrastructure. The group recommended that a drug court planning programme be initiated, a drug court planning committee formed, and a drug court co-ordinator appointed.
