Give addicts heroin, says officer

`Heroin should be prescribed to drug addicts to curb crime, the deputy chief constable of Nottinghamshire has said at a drugs conference.

Howard Roberts told an Association of Chief Police Officers’ conference in Manchester the idea should be assessed.

He said the treatment would cost 12,000 a year per addict but added that drug users steal property valued at an average of 45,000 a year.’
