Putting end to drink violence

LATE-night violence on the Coffs Coast is being targeted by licensing police.

Northern Region licensing police are working to ensure late-night pubs and clubs in the region use experienced staff, in a bid to reduce the level of drunken violence.

Paul Tapley from the Alcohol Licensing and Enforcement Command said people left in charge of late-night venues needed to be well trained as they could face intimidating situations.

“One of the things we like to see in late trading venues ... is to have people who are experienced, particularly in the liquor industry but also experienced in life so they’ve got management skills as well,” Senior Sergeant Tapley said.
