Joint bid to cut violence

Have your say

POLICE have joined forces with city nightclub watchdogs to raise awareness of the risks of alcohol-related violence.

Unight Edinburgh, the self-regulatory body of late-night licensees across the Capital, is asking its members to show the force’s Violence Reducation Unit’s “Have You Got The Bottle?” film on screens in their premises.

The plan comes ahead of the alcohol and weapons phase of this year’s anti-violence campaign, which starts next month.

Sarah David, whose Naked Promotions runs five bars and is a member of the chair group of Unight, said: “Whilst we want people to relax and enjoy themselves we also want them to do so in a safe environment.”
