Currently, numbers of crimes by drunken people are increasing and quality of police jobs for crime prevention and civil service is downward due to over-spending of police capacity to treat heavily drunken people. Thus, we should not tolerate current situations and actively seek out reasonable solutions to this problem for our society. Based on these situations, the necessity of protection act for the treatment of heavily drunken people can be described as followings, 1) a motive to realize seriousness of heavy drinking problems, 2) a motive to concentrate police power toward more essential police duties, 3) a motive to decrease the cost of police for the treatment of heavily drunken people, and 4) a motive to change the distorted drinking culture in Korea To achieve original goals of the protection act for the treatment of heavily drunken people, fundamental change in acknowledge of drinking culture and various support from local governments and medical experts are essential. Meanwhile, in the treat of heavily drunken people, medical protection is very important to heavily drunken people, therefore it is necessary to establish the program for effective treatment to heavily drunken people, therefore it is necessary to establish the program for effective treatment to heavily drunken people.

Thus, main administrative organ of heavily drunken people treatment is not police but a local government. Police is in charge of beginning step and a local government and medical agency take follow up measure, this is reasonable system.
