New Jersey law enforcement agencies will begin random drug testing of their officers to curb steroid use, state Attorney General Paula Dow has announced.

Under a plan introduced by the state's attorney general, anabolic steroids and human growth hormone have been added to the list of substances subject to testing. Local departments must fund the tests, meaning they can decide when to carry them out, and even whether or not to do them.

Officers found to have steroids or growth hormones in their blood must produce a doctor's letter showing a prescription was issued for a clinical reason. The letter must also state that the treatment will not undermine how that officer carries out his or her duties.
