from the homicide squad called in to assist detectives from Central North Police District.
About 3pm last Sunday, officers arrested a 23-yearold woman at Lightning Ridge Police Station where she was charged.
The woman was refused bail and was due to appear in Walgett Local Court this week.
Police are continuing their inquiries. some of the latest research in the alcohol and drug sector, how to enhance their community engagement skills, plus celebrate their achievements.
NSW boasts 71 CDATS which are groups of passionate volunteers leading alcohol and other drug harm prevention projects, aiming to strengthen their communities.
The Wellington CDAT is focused on informing their community about the negative impacts of supplying alcohol to minors.
The locals were inspired by the recent conference and are looking to broaden their membership and impact for the next project.
The Kids&booze – Community Lose Project is aimed at informing adults about the negative impact of buying/giving alcohol to minors.
Wellington CDAT told the conference they had identified one of the biggest issues affecting the community was that many people did not know that the secondary supply of alcohol to minors is illegal. They got to work on addressing that issue.
The Alcohol and Drug Foundation (ADF). which manages the NSW government-funded CDATS, said the Wellington CDAT was presented with the alcohol-related project award for its creative and community-minded approach to a hard reduction strategy addressing a specific alcohol related issue in their community.
“I commend the Wellington CDAT for its passion and commitment to preventing and reducing alcohol and other drug related harms in their local area,” said the ADF’S NSW/ACT state manager Dr Lisa Simone.
