Centre for Law Enforcement and Public Health Conference
The Executive Officer of the Yarra Drug and Health Forum, Greg Denham, attended the Centre for Law Enforcement and Public Health Conference held in Toronto, Canada from 21-24 October 2018. The EO spoke about the Medically Supervised Injecting Room (MSIR) in North Richmond:
‘The Melbourne Experience: Illicit drug consumption rooms, a straight forward solution in a complex policy environment’
The general aim of the Victoria Street Consultative Group was to work towards a safer and more prosperous Victoria Street precinct. This was to be achieved by taking a collaborative and multi-sectorial, problem-solving approach toward issues impacting the local community that are directly and indirectly related to the illicit drug market.
The Victoria Street Consultative Group is not currently meeting.
