Melbourne ‘High Alert’ campaign aims to warn drug users of police raids at venues

 A new campaign aims to offer legal advice to drug users and tip off dealers and clubs when police are set to raid venues.

The campaign’s founder has told 3AW their aim is to reduced harm that they say is caused by Operation Safenight. 

Nevena Spirovska is the founder of ‘High Alert’, she spoke with Tom Elliott. 

‘I’m in no way suggesting that there aren’t harms when it comes to taking drugs,’ she said on 3AW Drive.

‘In our team we have people that are practising law that will be able to provide, not only legal information, but legal advice.’

Police have denounced the campaign, telling 3AW Drive’s Tom Elliott it’s very disturbing.

‘I would have thought we could work quite effectively within Victoria Police and continue on the good work being done to prevent harms,’ Superintendent Philip Green said on 3AW Drive.
