We understand that you may not be sure if someone spiked you. Or that you can't remember where or when it may have happened. That's fine.
You can tell us that you think someone has spiked you. Even if you don't think that there's any evidence, you don't want us to investigate or you don't want to give us a urine or blood sample for forensic testing. You're in control.
Don’t worry if you don’t know if there were any CCTV cameras or witnesses. We’ll investigate that for you.
We would like to know about any spiking incident, no matter how long ago it happened. There is no time limit to report spiking and it doesn’t matter if you can’t remember all the details.
But a forensic test can establish whether someone may have spiked you. Only the police can conduct a forensic test that we can use in evidence if we find who spiked you. But it's up to you if you want to provide a sample. If not, that's fine.
Some drugs can leave your body within 12 hours or much sooner, but we can still detect dozens of other drugs for up to seven days. The sooner you report spiking to us and provide us with a urine or blood sample for forensic testing, the more reliable the test result is likely to be.
You can tell us about spiking even if you don't want to take part inforensic testing and the investigation. And if it happened more than seven days ago, we may still be able to investigate and collect evidence.
