Maroochydore police would like to remind the community this festive season to Party Safe.
Drink spiking is when alcohol or another substance is added to someone else's drink without their knowledge or consent.
Drink spiking is a criminal act that can occur in a range of settings including pubs, nightclubs and private parties.
Alcohol is the drug most often used to spike someone's drink, so chances are you won't be able to tell that your drink has been spiked.
If you or a friend suspect your drink has been spiked, go to the closet police station or hospital.
Urine or blood tests performed as soon as possible after the event can detect the presence of most drugs.
To reduce your chances of your drink being spiked, never leave your drink unattended, avoid sharing drinks, buy your own, don't drink anything you didn't see opened or poured, stay with friends and look after each other.
Remember in any emergency call Triple Zero (000)
