Brisbane Water Police District has revealed that 16 patrons have been barred from local venues in the past month as part of a new crack down into alcohol-related violence.
The local police district has been working together with the Brisbane Water Liquor Accord, to try and reduce alcohol related violence in and around licensed venues.
Since lockdown has been lifted, 16 patrons have been barred from local pubs, clubs and bars.
Police say the ‘barred from one, barred from all’ scheme has been successfully run for over 10 years within the district.
“It is a strategy that ensures violent people are barred from not just one but all venues within the liquor accord,” police said.
“If patrons are found committing an act of violence, drug use or underage, the venues can ban individuals for a minimum of 12 months.
“The message is simple: if you don’t want to be added to the list – be responsible for your own actions, be courteous to staff and other patrons and know your limits!
“Don’t be added to the list of 400 people who are unable to socialise and enjoy time with family and friends within these hospitality venues.”
