An input from our Crime Reduction Officer Amanda CLARKE


Responsible Drinking


Everyone likes to go out and have a good time now and again, and usually that involves alcohol in some way. Drinking responsibly is not only better for your health, but it helps to keep you and your possessions safe.  Alcohol consumption dramatically increases peoples tendency to risk take, resulting in pedestrian accidents on the roads, assaults in and around licensed premises and sexual behaviour that is later regretted.

You are also much more likely to be a victim of theft and assaults if you have consumed alcohol.  Know your limits and stick to them. If you are going out in a group one person should be the sober friend who makes sure the rest of the group stay safe.  Agree that no-one leaves the group, or goes home alone, and make sure that fares home are kept separate from other money.  If you are travelling by taxi, book it in advance and wait for the driver to ask for you by name, never get in a vehicle assuming it is your taxi.  Don’t walk home alone, and always chose a well lit well populated road, even if it means taking a slightly longer route. And remember, drinking and driving don’t mix; even a small amount of alcohol can compromise your reactions and decision making ability so it is best not to drink alcohol at all if you are driving.
