Around 20 licensees from Bromley’s pubs, bars and clubs have joined forces for a scheme that aims to fight crime and anti-social behaviour.
Pubwatch, supported by Bromley Council’s licensing team and Bromley Police, will let the bar bosses swap information about troublemakers and issues to watch out for.
The licensees met in Bar Sport, in Bromley High Street, on Monday to kick off the new scheme.
Cllr Tim Stevens, executive for public protection and safety, said: “Bromley already has a strong reputation for its robust licensing policy - we simply will not allow bad practice in the borough and will take action with local police support when necessary.
“Well-run premises are important for the continued success of our town centres and the PubWatch scheme builds on the borough’s good reputation.
“With the support of responsible landlords, such as those at the launch of this scheme, our safe and pleasant leisure environment should be further enhanced.”
