Drug Labs – Clandestine Drug Laboratories (Clan labs)
Drug labs pose a risk to the safety and security of all Queenslanders. The ingredients used in drug labs to produce illicit drugs are highly toxic, flammable, and incredibly dangerous. Drug labs explode, ignite and emit harmful gases that can cause serious health problems and can be life-threatening.
The State Drug Investigation Unit (SDIU) is a specialist investigative unit which has responsibility for conducting and assisting in investigations of serious drug offences including the production of dangerous drugs and possession of drug lab equipment. The SDIU is responsible for safely dismantling drug labs. Our message should you locate or suspect a drug lab:
Never touch items you suspect are drug related. If you suspect a drug lab is present, do not enter the premises. If already inside or near a drug lab then leave immediately and contact police.
