Campaign launched to counter Melbourne crackdown on drugs
with a heavier police presence aimed to increase community safety. The mission is named “Operation Safe Night” and has been targeting Australian entertainment venues and clubs. The campaign consists uniformed and undercover ficers, along with drug dogs, attempting to catch people in the acts selling or doing drugs.
On April 20, those opposed to Operation Safe Night launched their own campaign, “High Alert.”
High Alert gives clubbers real-time access to sniffer dog locations, sort like the Waze app for nightlife. High Alert also provides information on legal rights and drug and alcohol support.
Their Facebook page details the mission:
