Be prepared for ACPO 'Week of Action'

Napthens - August 19th 2013

The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) has announced a “week of action” on licensing and alcohol-related harm, which will run from 16 - 22 September.

It is understood that ACPO has not dictated to local forces what actions should be taken, but there is expected to be an increase in activity surrounding licensed premises which is likely to include additional test purchases and site inspections.

This should serve as a timely reminder to familiarise yourself with the conditions on your premises licence to ensure you are compliant, to be diligent in relation to underage sales and to ensure that all staff training is up to date.
