Pub Watch zero tolerance stance on drugs and drink-driving in Bracknell

December 6, 2012, 2:50 pm

Thames Valley Police is working in partnership with Bracknells Pub Watch scheme this Christmas to adopt a ‘zero tolerance against drugs in their premises.

All pubs and clubs in the Bracknell Local Policing Area (LPA) subscribe to the ‘banned from one, banned from all policy. Anyone caught doing drugs, or dealing, are not only reported to the police but are likely to be banned from all licensed premises in the Bracknell LPA.

Members will also be supporting Thames Valley Polices Christmas anti drink-drive campaign.

If you are planning to go out drinking over the festive season follow this simple safety advice:

  • Drink sensibly and stay with your friends
  • Plan in advance how you will get home
  • Save the number of a licensed taxi firm in your mobile phone
  • Dont accept drinks from strangers or leave your drink unattended
  • If theres trouble while youre out, stay well clear of it
  • Avoid walking alone through dark or unsafe areas (men as well as women)
  • Keep your belongings with you and your valuables out of sight
  • Dont drink and drive, and remember you may still be over the limit the morning after a big night out

Pub Watch members in Bracknell meet on a regular basis to discuss issues and share information.

Insp Jon Goosey, Deputy LPA Commander, said: “It is fantastic that licence holders work together in this way. Pub Watch is a great initiative as it means that everyone can work together to ensure that drinking in licensed premises in Bracknell remains safe and enjoyable.”

Members of the media and photographers are invited to attend Bracknell Sports Centre on Tuesday (11/12) at 3pm.

Local licensees and Insp Jon Goosey will be available for interview, and to be photographed. The meeting will be a closed meeting and will take place after the interviews and photographs have been completed.
