Police meet with liquor licence holders

Police have met with liquor licence holders to explain their powers to shut down establishments where antisocial behaviour breaks out.

About 40 representatives met at the Police Club at Prospect, Devonshire yesterday with further meetings planned for the East and West Ends.

Three establishments have been hit recently with 24-hour closures in response to specific incidents.

The group met with Superintendent James Howard, Sergeant Andrew Exell the liquor licensing officer and Chief Inspector Robert Cardwell as facilitator.

The group discussed the obligations of licensed established, and touched on the issues of drug use and underage drinking.

Questions over licensing can be directed to Mr Exell at 247-1146 or e-mail at
