Alcohol Summit 2013

On the 27th June 2013 Derbyshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Alan Charles, called a Summit to discuss alcohol related crime in Derbyshire. 

Public fears over drink-related crime were placed at the top of the agenda where a multitude of agencies and individuals agreed to share their expertise and knowledge in an effort to identify fresh ways of dealing with alcohol misuse in Derbyshire and ultimately reduce crime rates.

Alcohol misuse has far-reaching consequences on individuals, families and the public at large. Alcohol plays a significant role in many types of offending including domestic violence and has a detrimental effect on public confidence and feelings of safety, particularly in areas blighted by drink-induced anti-social behaviour. It also places a major burden on the health service in terms of demand on staff and costs.

Delegates at the Summit heard about the ground-breaking work taking place elsewhere in the country, including the successful and highly praised partnership approach developed in Ipswich, to tackle alcohol crime and the promising results achieved in an effort to find suitable intervention techniques for Derbyshire.

A report on the Summit is now available HERE and you can also find below the the presentations made by the speakers and if you have any feedback or comments please use the form at the bottom of this page.
