The issue of substance misuse related anti-social behaviour in Dublin city centre has for a long time been a source of media focus and public concern. Following the establishment in 2010 of the Dublin City Local Business Policing Forum, this issue became a recurring item of discussion. A number of agencies and organisations were invited to make presentations on the topic. In January 2011, in his capacity as chairman of the Policing Forum, former Lord Mayor of Dublin, Councillor Gerry Breen, called a meeting of representatives of some of Dublin City’s key stakeholders. At the meeting it was proposed that a generic Good Neighbour policy which could be localised by any drug service could be developed. As part of the Ana Liffey Drug Project’s suite of services, the Progression Routes initiative was tasked with the job of interviewing relevant stakeholders to develop a suitable policy. During this process those involved expressed an interest in establishing a cross city/inter-agency group to address the issues in a co-ordinated manner and this was presented back to the Policing Forum.
