Dear Victoria Police,
Could you please give me the numbers of positive drug and alcohol tests there were when police held a road blitz at Koonoomoo Vic, 17th to 2oth November 2016. I believe the main presence of the police was on the 20th Nov. I know a number of charges were made but I presume some of those tested may have had lower readings. I would also like to know if there were any charges made for possession of illegal substances at this time.

Yours faithfully,

Olwyn Mathers
