National Pubwatch Scheme Locator

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.

“Alcohol related crime has a significant detrimental impact on our town centres and local communities. The Governments Modern Crime Prevention Strategy highlights the importance of working together to address this. I am therefore extremely grateful to the National Pubwatch Scheme for the vital work that they do to promote local partnerships across the UK to tackle the small number of offenders whose actions can cause real damage to the night time economy.”

Sarah Newton MP, Minister for Vulnerabilty, Safeguarding and Countering Extremism

“National Pubwatch plays a key role in promoting good practice and supporting local Pubwatch schemes which can make a real difference to improving the safety of people working and socialising in our town and city centres.”

ACC Rachel Kearton – Alcohol Lead, National Police Chief’s Council
