On Monday 29th July 2013, the Centre for Customs and Excise Studies (CCES) donated a synthetic Drug Identification Kit to the Australian Federal Police (AFP). The AFP will be using the Kit as a teaching aid for existing staff and new recruits, and in its community outreach programs.
The CCES Drug Identification Kit consists of over 30 simulated drug samples designed to assist with visual identification of illicit substances. Each sample is packaged individually in a clear plastic box, with an insert reference card that provides a colour image and key information about the enclosed drug. Three sealed display boards showing 20 paraphernalia items associated with drug use are also included in the kit. The kit is packaged in a hard sided, secure briefcase with a coloured identification chart and drug data sheets.
Included in this kit is an educational DVD. Key topic areas include illicit drug identification; understanding drugs and their effects; cultivation, production and trafficking.
