'Banned from one banned from all' launched across the Shoalhaven

baned_1.jpg

Police are supporting the Shoalhaven Liquor and Gaming Accord’s ‘banned from one, banned from all’ initiative across the South Coast Police District.

Shoalhaven Liquor Accord Chairman Garry Wilbraham said "From Wednesday 1 December 2021, licensed venues from Berry to Huskisson will be involved in the campaign that will deny entry to patrons who behave inappropriately in pubs and clubs across the Shoalhaven and refuse entry to those people at other licensed premises."

Acting Inspector Ryan Sheaff from South Coast Police District said "Police are supportive of initiatives that create a safer environment for patrons and staff.

Shoalhaven hotels and licensed clubs will network information and details about banned patrons to prevent them attending any licensed premises for up to five years for serious offences such as assaulting club staff or security officers.

Anyone carrying out illegal activity such as drug dealing at licensed premises will also face bans.

“The ‘banned from one, banned from all’ initiative by the Shoalhaven Liquor Accord is a great idea for getting people to party safe and be socially responsible for their actions,” Acting Insp Sheaff said.

“Patrons who are going to play up at one venue can expect their night to end abruptly and find their options for socialising at licensed premises limited.”
