National knows the border is our first line of defence and we will resource it appropriately.
National will invest more resources to combat the drug trade, particularly methamphetamine and synthetics.
- Tighten border controls with increased searching of containers and mail to prevent drugs coming into the country.
- Introduce additional drug dogs at airports and ports.
- Increase funding for drug intelligence to enable Customs, Police and Health to identify new drugs and bad batches sooner.
- Increase resourcing for passenger health screening in the COVID-19 environment.
