Comment on Cops at bottlos a winner, says Congress by Ian Campbell.

Congratulations Alice Springs. The place has been transformed since this alcohol initiative.
As a tourist from down south, it is now pleasant to walk down the Main Street and to walk along the Todd with no drunken groups present, and no drunks in the parks.
What a difference this police initiative has made.
I came here many years ago for a week and was appalled at the shoplifting, drunken brawling and frequency of death in the Todd. Speaking to a police officer on duty at an alcohol outlet he said no homicides and a 38% reduction in crime was the result so far, and police paperwork has significantly reduced.
The initiative is working well. Keep up the good work.
