Random testing pushed by N.J. attorney generalAfter Attorney General Paula Dow pushed a spate of reforms designed to combat steroid abuse in law enforcement, the president of the state police chief’s association said he believes that most departments in New Jersey will add the substances to the list of drugs for which officers are randomly tested.

William Nally, the police chief in Lacey Township and president of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police, was one of several law enforcement officials to predict random steroid testing getting more common after office of the Attorney General completes revisions to its drug-testing guidelines.

Dow said during a press conference in Hamilton that the newspaper’s three-part series “highlighted the damage that can be done when a doctor’s actions go unchecked and individuals become aware of the opportunity to obtain medications they may not be entitled to.”
