South Wales Police is aware of public concern around reports of spiking in towns and cities around the UK. Spiking is when alcohol or drugs are put into someone's drink without their knowledge or permission. There is also some concern at the possibility that people are being ‘spiked’ by needles or syringes containing drugs.
We have received a small number of reports from people who believe this might have happened to them and these are currently under investigation.
Our officers are working with licensed premises to alert them to spiking methods and asking them to be extra vigilant at this time.
We take all reports seriously and encourage anyone who believes they have been a victim of spiking in any form to contact us.
South Wales Police has an excellent history of partnership working and we provide training to staff at city centre licensed premises to help them identify and safeguard vulnerable people and we regularly see examples of where this training has paid off.
