Online debate to help cut pub crime

Pub workers are being urged to take part in a Derbyshire Police online debate which aims to cut crime.

Licensees and bar workers can speak to specially trained officers about issues affecting the pub trade on Wednesday, September 18 from 11am - 2pm.

The ‘virtual surgery’ is being held as part of a national campaign planned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) to highlight the work of the police in tackling alcohol-related crime and anti-social behaviour.

People can pose questions to the panel anonymously.

Superintendent Gary Parkin, said: “Our officers already have a good working relationship with the majority of licensees across Derbyshire but this is an ideal opportunity for those working in the pub trade to ask any questions they have for the police.”
