|Forty-six people have been banned from a number of pubs and bars in Chesterfield in a unanimous decision by the town’s Pub Watch members.|
The individuals, a mixture of men and woman, were originally arrested by police in connection with drugs offences as the result of an operation in the town centre between October and December last year.
Each person has been banned for five years from entering 33 licenced premises in the town centre, which are members of Chesterfield Pub Watch scheme.
A further 15 premises, that form the Sheffield Road Pub Watch, are also considering banning the individuals, and members will taking a vote at their meeting next week.
Pub Watch schemes are established by licensees and membership is restricted to licensed premises. They link in with the police, council and community safety partnerships, and work together to help reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.
Roger Butler, Deputy Chair of Chesterfield Pub Watch, said: “Chesterfield Pub Watch is keen to support Derbyshire police in reducing drug related crime in our night time economy.”
Inspector Glyn Jones, who is responsible for the police licensing team in Chesterfield, said: “Pub Watch schemes can be very effective in taking a stand against crime and anti-social behaviour, which in turn helps create a safe and pleasant environment for people to enjoy a night out.
“This decision also shows that the members take their responsibilities to the wider community seriously, and by working together they can have a greater impact on keeping town centre premises safe.”
