Alcohol policy halved street crime

first_imgChristchurch Press 11 June 2013The Christchurch City Council has proposed a one-way door policy after 1am for Christchurch bars in some parts of the city and 1am closing in others. Tony Brown, who campaigned for a similar policy in Newcastle, New South Wales, says it has worked for his city and public safety must be put before pub profits. I commend Christchurch City Council, police and health authorities for their courage and wisdom in seeking a 1am closure or 3am closure with 1am lockout to prevent and reduce alcohol-related harm.In 2007, Australia’s sixth largest city, Newcastle, with a regional population of more than 620,000, had the highest rate of alcohol-fuelled street violence, associated with its deregulated night economy where on average 20,000 younger patrons were allowed to drink themselves stupid to 5am every weekend. Unsurprisingly, our inner city also had the ignominious distinction of the highest drink-driving rate and one of New South Wales’ highest rates of drunken assaults on police and other emergency workers, including ambulance officers, nurses and doctors. From around 2000, when the New South Wales government, under the influence of the powerful liquor industry, gave the green light to Newcastle pubs and clubs to extend their late trading, the number of alcohol-related admissions to our large hospital emergency department skyrocketed. Local residents became hostage to the appalling levels of alcohol-fuelled violence, vandalism and vomit. It cost Newcastle City Council ratepayers around $1 million a year just to clean up this so called “vibrancy”. Compliance with Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) legal obligations by our liquor lords was simply non-existent….Following protracted legal proceedings initiated by the local police with the support of over 150 local residents and small businesses, an independent Liquor Administration Board (shortly thereafter abolished) in March 2008 imposed a precinct-wide and enforceable 3am closure, 1am lockout and a package of other controls impacting on the availability and strength of alcohol sold. The public and politicians were, and still are, subjected to hysteria and spin from the powerful and very well-connected Australian Hotel Association (AHA). They falsely claim these modest and sensible alcohol-supply controls have “devastated” Newcastle and created a “wowser” or “nanny state”, ruled by the “fun police” for a “retirement village”. They ignore the ongoing significant investment in licensed premises.A 2012 study by Professor John Wiggers, of Hunter New England Population Health and the University of Newcastle found:A sustained 35 per cent reduction in night-time alcohol- fuelled (non-domestic) assaults.We estimate this may have prevented over 2500 brutal bashings of our predominantly younger people on our city streets late at night.A 50 per cent reduction in night-time street crime.A 26 per cent reduction in alcohol-related night time ED admissions.About 80 per cent community support for the harm prevention measures.A recent Deakin University study found the benefits of the 2008 Newcastle intervention have surpassed any other Australian city’s attempts to reduce alcohol-related harm.http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/opinion/perspective/8779512/Alcohol-policy-halved-street-crimelast_img read more

Atalanta boss rues Champions League quarter-final exit

first_img Loading… Gian Piero Gasperini was left in wonderland after his Atalanta side failed to claim a glorious Champions League victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the final seconds on Wednesday night. The Serie A side were leading the quarter-final 1-0 heading into the final minute in Lisbon but were dumped out of the competition in brutal fashion thanks to last gasp goals from Marquinhos and Eric Choupo-Moting. “I must say that there is great regret, we came very close, it was very close. It looked as it we could do it, pull off a great achievement,” Gasperini said to Sky Sport. “We can take satisfaction from the experience, our Champions League growth. It looked as if we had done it.” Wednesday’s defeat was the cruellest way to end what has nonetheless been another remarkable season for the side from Bergamo, one of the worst-hit cities during the coronavirus pandemic. Traditionally an also-ran, Atalanta finished third in Serie A for the second season in a row and enchanted fans across Europe with flamboyant football that led to them scoring 98 times in the Italian top flight.
