On-premises Assaults Halved on Central Coast



The Australian Hotels Association NSW recently commenting on data from the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) highlighted the benefits of measures including the ‘barred from one, barred from all’ rule.

According to BOCSAR,  the assault rates in licensed premises on the NSW Central Coast have halved since 2008, mostly due to the joint efforts of police, hoteliers and the community.

In fact over the last 12 months alone, assaults in pubs and clubs across the Central Coast have declined by 32 per cent. One of the strategies that have proven so successful sees patrons committing violence, barred from all participating premises in the liquor accord.
