Pub Watch gets Stranraer Connected

A SCHEME aimed at linking pubs by radio to combat disorder related to excessive drinking is to be started in Stranraer before Christmas.

Pub Watch Stranraer will see licensees in the town get together with police to start the scheme before the busy Christmas and New Year spell gets underway.

The initiative is based on pubs in the area renting radio equipment similar to that used successfully by retailers in Stranraer to target shoplifters.

Radios will connect those signed up directly to police, CCTV operators and other licensed premises. This will allow Pub Watch members to alert each other and police to potential trouble makers heading their way.

Any revellers who do step out of line can later be barred from Pub Watch member pubs for a limited time or indefinitely. With take up for the scheme expected to be high, this would effectively bar perpetrators from most licensed premises in the town.
