An announcement from Greg Denham follows:

It is with great pleasure that I can inform you that the Law
Enforcement And Harm Reduction Network (LEAHRN) website is now live.
The website can be accessed through:

LEAHRN is about bringing law enforcement and harm reduction closer
LEAHRN aims to connect people who want to know more about how
police and harm reduction services can work together more effectively.
LEAHRN seeks to promote harmony and a better understanding between
police and health service providers so that more programs involving
clean needles and syringes, methadone, condoms and supervised injecting
facilities can be successfully delivered.
The website is still in its formative stages and will undergo
further development over the next few weeks, including additional
resources and updated information being added regularly.
You can access the LEAHRN Blog – ‘COPS HR’ to write an
opinion, make a comment, post news items, ask questions etc etc about
issues related to policing and harm reduction. I encourage you to
forward the LEAHRN link:  to others, particularly police, to
facilitate connections/discussions between those representing law
enforcement and harm reduction agencies.
I look forward to your comments.
Please note that that several of the links are not established yet
and the Russian language version of the website is still under
Best wishes,
