Alcohol-related activities cause a considerable cost to the NSW Police whose main focus is to ensure the safety of the community, reduce incidents of violence and protection of property. A report in 2007 found that it costs the NSW Police almost $50 million a year to deal with alcohol-related activity.
Therefore the Licensee and Police have obligations to ensure the safety of patrons, staff and the community at large by preventing excessive consumption of alcohol on licensed premises.
Briefly, you cannot be intoxicated, or be violent, indecent or quarrelsome on a licensed premises. If you are, then you will be asked to leave and when asked you must leave the premises. Failure to comply will result in a $550 fine or an arrest and charge.
