Recommendations for Changes in Laws, Resources and Programs Related to Drug Law Enforcement. Discussion Paper 89-2.
This document lists recommendations for changes in laws, resources and programs relating to drug law enforcement made to the Wisconsin Special Committee on Drug Law Enforcement, as of August 25, 1989. Some of the recommendations are based on comments of Committee members, rather than persons testifying to the Committee. Each recommendation is followed by brief background information, which includes an identification of the person making the recommendation. In order to collect background information for some of the recommendations, limited contacts were made by Committee staff with persons who did not appear before the Committee. This document does not attempt to thoroughly discuss or analyze each recommendation. The document is limited to recommendations related to drug law enforcement and does not discuss any recommendations made to the Committee regarding drug treatment or education. Four recommendations are made in the area of drug enforcement investigation; five recommendations in the area of prosecution; six recommendations in the area of penalties; two recommendations in the area of forfeitures and surcharges; four recommendations in the area of funding; and five miscellaneous recommendations.
