A harm minimisation campaign helping clubbers access legal information and sniffer dog locations is
being launched in response to a police crackdown on drugs in Melbourne clubbing
The crackdown is targeting venue dancefloors, bathrooms, lines and city streets with a heavy presence of uniformed and undercover police officers, and sniffer dogs, to try and catch people dealing and in possession of illegal substances.
Now, clubbers will be able to access real-time sniffer dog locations via text message by signing up through the 'High Alert' campaign site, which also provides information on legal rights and drug and alcohol support.
"We want people to know that Operation Safenight is happening, and they have support if they are adversely affected by it," High Alert founder Nevena Spirovska told Mixmag.
Melbourne clubbers can also stay up to date with the movements of Operation Safenight by liking the High Alert Facebook page and looking out for campaigners with flyers and yellow tees when out.
