This week we are distributing posters which aim encourage responsible drinking during the World Cup to a range of pubs, bars and nightclubs across Lancashire, Cumbria and Greater Manchester. We have worked in partnership with Lancashire Constabulary, Greater Manchester Police and Cumbria Constabulary in designing the posters and they have endorsed the initiative which aims to make people aware of their actions and not drink an excessive amount of alcohol during the games.
The initiative also demonstrates the level of experience we have working alongside a number of Police Forces, the SIA and licencing departments. These working relationships also mean that our clients trust us to work the key organisations that can have an impact on their business and help to protect their licence.
Since taking over as Licencing Sergeant in January 2013 I have developed a close working relationship with Ben Knott (FGH Security Operations Manager) who is quick to respond to any matters that arise. In this time, I have regularly interacted with Door Supervisors from FGH Security and have found them to be polite, professional and well trained. Partnerships like this can be instrumental in reducing alcohol related crime and it always puts my mind at rest when I know FGH Security are operating at a venue in my division.
