Fight in one pub, you’ll be barred from all
PUBLICANS in Dalby want to send a clear and simple message to patrons: be civil or leave.
Pub owners and managers met on Wednesday,. May 9, to discuss the importance of having a cohesive approach when tackling violence in the town’s establishments.
Pub fights and incidents have dropped significantly in recent years, which the publicans agreed was a credit to the community.
In partnership with police, the commitment for safe places for families to have an enjoyable night has never been stronger.
Dalby Senior Constable Sean Donaghy said there was always more work to be done to eradicate violence.
“The purpose is to stop violence in pubs and (publicans) work with the police,” he said.
“Every month we have a meeting and discuss issues we may have.
“What the publicans want to do is send a message out – violence in their establishment will not be tolerated.
“Violence in their establishments will not be tolerated by the police and the courts.”
A liquor accord in Dalby allows publicans to get together and discuss any problems.
The accord also allows civil banning orders to be placed on any patrons who misbehave.
Importantly, if someone misbehaves in one pub, they will be barred from all Dalby establishments.
