July 2023: The Home Office has just launched a new toolkit to help police officers identify appropriate interventions to tackle a range of alcohol related issues.
We are grateful that the Home Office has recognised the important role that Pubwatch schemes play in:
- pre-empting crime and anti-social behaviour
- building close working relationships with police and local authorities
- maintaining a safe and secure social environment for customers and staff
The toolkit features a checklist /self-audit tool which allows police forces, Police and Crime Commissioners and partner agencies to review local police efforts to tackle alcohol-related harm.
We are are also pleased that the efforts of our friends at Best Bar None are also recognised as a ‘Home Office supported accreditation scheme for the drinks and hospitality industries’.
