The NWRDATF is one of 24 Task Forces in the country to sign up to the DRIVE (Drug Related Intimidation and Violence Engagement) initiative. Drive was set up to respond effectively to drug related intimidation and violence in communities using an interagency approach comprised of An Garda Siochana, HSE Social Inclusion, Probation Services, Family Support services and Community and Voluntary sectors. We look forward to continuing this work and moving the DRIVE into the next phase – watch this space.
