    In spite of the evidence of the positive public health effects of SIFs, they remain controversial in some jurisdictions. Much of the controversy centres on perceived public amenity impacts of the facilities. However, there is no published research demonstrating any negative impacts of SIFs on measures of public amenity. In contrast, research has shown that the public amenity impacts of SIFs are either neutral or positive across a range of amenity measures such as those pertaining to drug related crime.
