Malaysian Police Views of Harm Reduction for Persons who Use Drugs

Last week, on 30-31 May 2012, I was in Canterbury for the International Society for the Study of Drug Policy conference and presented on Malaysian Police Views of Harm Reduction. 52.8% of respondents stated that they would seize state-provided needles-and-syringes. They also recommended that police change their KPIs from "persons arrested" to "persons arrested diverted to treatment."
