50 men and women banned from pubs and clubs



Nearly 50 people have been banned from a number of pubs and bars in Chesterfield.

The 46 men and women were originally arrested in connection with drugs offences as a 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 which are part of the Chesterfield Pub Watch (CPW) scheme. The decision was made by CPW members.

A further 15 premises, which form the Sheffield Road Pub Watch scheme, are also considering banning the individuals. Members will make a decision at their meeting next week.

Pub Watch schemes are established by licensees and membership is restricted to licensed premises. They link in with authorities including the police and work together to help reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.

Roger Butler, deputy chair of Chesterfield Pub Watch, said: “We are 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.”
