The Intoxicated Campaign was first launched in “B” Division by the Derbyshire Police Licensing Unit a number of years ago. The aim was to give the campaign an instantly recognisable, high-profile identity, with the simple message for both staff and customers alike, that anyone approaching the bar in a drunken state would not be served alcohol.
Promotional items were demonstrated to members including T-Shirts, beer mats, posters and hi-viz jackets and hats.
Members were advised that the campaign would initially be in Leek town centre, later spreading to Cheadle and Biddulph town centres. The campaign had been introduced at a recent Leek Pubwatch meeting and Publicans present at that meeting were very keen to adopt it. Folders were to be issued to participating pubs containing all relevant information with a view to commencement before Christmas 2019. An Enforcement Programme was already planned with the Police.
