Psychiatry related information on Law Enforcement


High impact information on Law Enforcement

  • The laws led to (1) increased price of narcotic drugs, (2) a heroin "industry," (3) corruption of the law enforcement system, and (4) major health problems involving parenteral drug use [2].
  • Few data on stress symptoms related to the World Trade Center disaster in law enforcement personnel have been reported [3].
  • A less recognized human exposure to high capsaicin concentrations may occur by pepper sprays used in law enforcement [4].
  • Compliance checks use underage decoys to attempt to purchase alcohol from retail merchants, while Cops in Shops programs deploy undercover law enforcement officers in alcohol outlets to detect and cite persons under the age of 21 who attempt to purchase alcohol [5].
  • The regular and formal monitoring of illicit drug trends enabled substantial changes in the cocaine market in Sydney to be detected, and the information to be fed back to the health and law enforcement sectors [6].

Biological context of Law Enforcement


Associations of Law Enforcement with chemical compounds

  • The method is rapid and reliable for qualitative and quantitative analysis of cold drinks adulterated with diazepam and can be used by law enforcement laboratories for routine analysis [10].
  • A general knowledge survey of DV was given before and approximately 4 to 6 months after 3 hours of instruction given by Emergency Medicine and Law Enforcement faculty [11].
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is apparently the first published case of symptomatic occupational phosphine exposure in a law enforcement officer during investigation of a methamphetamine laboratory [12].
  • Anabolic steroid use has escalated in recent years along with law enforcement [13].
  • No patient failed to show possession of recalled take-home doses, and no instances of liquid methadone diversion were reported by law enforcement agencies in the area [14].

Gene context of Law Enforcement

  • Medicare Part D creates challenges for safety-net providers and law enforcement [15].
  • The incidence rate was highest for firefighters (39.1/million) and law enforcement officers (26.6/million) [16].
  • We studied two populations from the same geographical area, law enforcement agents (LEA), since they are often the first to intervene, and high school students (HSS) since they are more likely to participate in such courses [17].
  • Ultimately, through the expansion of the data basing law to include all convicted offenders and juveniles convicted of a crime that would be considered a felony if tried as an adult, the Division has successfully used the DNA Data Bank to aid the law enforcement community in solving crimes where the victim was unable to identify the perpetrator [18].
  • "Crystal methamphetamine" is a crystalline form of amphetamine, the abuse of which is growing rapidly in popularity in Japan, Hawaii and the West Coast. Drug experts and law enforcement officials say that the use of crystal meth is spreading east from California. It may produce permanent addiction and can produce violent schizophrenic behavior [19].
