The "intensive" elements of the Drug Interventions Programme are currently operational in 66 police Basic Command Units (47 DATs) with high levels of acquisitive crime. In 2005–06 we will expand the "intensive" elements of the Drug Interventions Programme to a further 32 police Basic Command Units. All areas in England and Wales are in receipt of funding for arrest referral schemes and for throughcare and aftercare.
Estimated total funding for the programme in 2004–05 is £188 million. This includes funding transferred to other agencies such as the Probation Service for the management of Drug Treatment and Testing Orders (DTTOs).
Most costs are met by central funding although the success of the Programme depends on the full participation of all agencies.
