Welcome to National Pubwatch

National Pubwatch is a voluntary organisation set up to promote best practice through supporting the work of local Pubwatch Schemes. Its aim is to achieve a safer drinking environment in all licensed premises throughout the UK.

‘Tackling alcohol related problems and making our town centres safer is a key priority for the Home Office. I am therefore delighted that there are voluntary bodies such as National Pubwatch active in the Night Time Economy which have a proven track record of working closely with the Police and other local agencies to share information and reduce crime and disorder.’

Norman Baker MP – Crime Prevention Minister

‘Pubwatch schemes working together with the Police can make a real difference to improving the safety of people working and socialising in our town and city centres’

Chief Constable Adrian Lee – ACPO
