Abstract

This article will focus on some of the results that were obtained when data was extrapolated from sampled to all non-sampled police stations in South Africa. The value of this approach is that it provides the South African Police Services (SAPS) with an understanding of which police stations in the country are at high risk for the abuse of substances such as alcohol and cannabis (dagga).
