N.J. to allow testing of police for steroids

A new state strategy unveiled Thursday to combat illegal steroid use by New Jersey police allows departments to test officers for steroids, but falls short of more drastic action taken in other parts of the country.

Flanked by prosecutors, police chiefs and medical officials, Attorney General Paula T. Dow listed a multi-tiered strategy for curbing misuse and improper prescribing of anabolic steroids and other muscle-building drugs, a problem that has cost taxpayers millions of dollars and jeopardized the community’s trust in law enforcement.
