    Short article, but this cops-on-drugs thing is rather interesting.

    "HAVANA, July 31 (Xinhua) -- The Dominican Republic's National Police have fired 61 officers for using illegal drugs after a random drug test, according to news from Santo Domingo, capital of this Caribbean country, on Monday.

    The news reports quoted Dominican government officials as saying that 16 of the 61 sacked officers had been tested positive for cocaine.

    The test, following public allegations that a large number of police officers had been involved in drug trafficking, covered 3,000 of all the 32,000 National Police officers. It was regarded as the latest move of the government's anti-crime offensive launched last week.

    The officials did not say if those officers would be tried for using illegal drugs."
