STAFF at bars, clubs and pubs in Derbyshire have been told to know when to say ‘no’ to drunk punters this Christmas as part of a clampdown on antisocial behaviour.
The ‘Intoxicated’ campaign has been launched after the county’s police and crime commissioner Alan Charles secured a batch of funding.
As a result, those who are pulling pints this festive season will receive extra training to help reduce irresponsible sales of alcohol.
The county’s deputy police and crime commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa (pictured), who has attended one of the course, said: “Alcohol-related harm is a key priority for police and the licensing authorities.
“This is why it is so important for all licence holders to understand and carry out their obligations not to sell alcohol to people who are in a drunken state.
“This course and the Intoxicated campaign is aimed at helping licence holders and their staff.”
