Following the success of the Dob in a Dealer program in Wellington, deputy premier Troy Grant said he would be happy to see the Dubbo community adopt similar initiatives in their fight against ice (crystal methamphetamine).”It’s locally driven, it’s getting national attention,” he said.

“This is a program that others will get to adapt, there’s a lot more that others need to do and the government is making resources to help.”

“I didn’t realise there weren’t sharps containers made readily available,” he added at the official launch of Dob in a Dealer in Wellington, later telling the ABC that the government would be dumb not to consider putting these facilities in place.

He said if Dubbo adopted Dob in a Dealer it would be for the Dubbo community to decide.

“Because Dob in a Dealer is a community initiative and they will need to decide what works for them,” he said.The Dob in a Dealer program has already seen impressive results before its official launch as part of their Gungie (meaning “police”) Origin grassroots campaign.

“It has had a major impact on the community,” Manager of the Wellington Information and Neighbourhood Services centre Alison Conn said.

“Around eight calls a day are made to Crime Stoppers from five a week and it is not just about drugs, it is over things like the recent firearms arrest.”

She said it had strengthened ties between the police and the community, and people now realised they could chat honestly to police and remain anonymous without having to worry about appearing in court.

“The official launch is also about what people can do to help us out,” she said.

Mr Grant said he was excited to watch Wellington’s journey and see the town’s passion as they took the initiative to beat the drug, especially following the town’s recent bad publicity.

“To want to do better for your community. You can talk for ever about your problems, but until you come up with a solution you can go around and around,” he said.

“Let’s continue to do the good work. There’s no such thing as a silly idea when it comes to beating ice and making the community the best it can be.”
