PDF ( Reducing alcohol-related violence and disorder) - Published Version

The Tackling Alcohol-related Street Crime (TASC) project was a police-led multi-agency scheme launched in July 2000 under the Home Office Targeted Policing Initiative, with the aim of reducing alcohol-related crime and disorder in central Cardiff and Cardiff Bay. Its interventions included:
• focused dialogue between the police and members of the licensed trade, mainly through an active Licensees Forum;
• measures aimed at improving the quality and behaviour of door staff;
• attempts to influence licensing policy and practice;
• measures aimed at publicising the problem of alcohol-related violent crime;
• targeted policing operations directed at crime and disorder ‘hot spots’;
• a cognitive behavioural programme for repeat offenders (‘COV-AID’);
• a training programme for bar staff (‘Servewise’);
• a programme of education about alcohol for school age children; and
• support for victims of alcohol-related assaults attending hospital.
