Child Protection Officer and Senior Sergeant Dave Miles Officer said that chrome plating was a regular occurrence in the city, with police interacting with someone affected by the substance on a daily basis.
He said that young people benefit from the cheap and easily accessible spray cans, but it is often difficult for the police to detect whether they have been affected.
“The problem we have is that there are no clear indicators, it’s not like alcohol where the effects can be long lasting,” said Sen-Sgt Miles.
