Welcome to Community Alcohol Partnerships

Farley Luton CAP launch

The Farley Hill (Luton) Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) was launched at an engagement event on Saturday (16 June) organised by the Community Team at Bedfordshire Police. The event, in the Market Square in Farley Hill, Luton, was also attended by representatives of Luton Borough Council and ResoLUTiONs, which offers crime prevention advice. The day focused on addressing the issues raised by local communities, which included drinking, drugs and nuisance biking. CAP showed its pavement stencil outside the Co-op, which warns adults not to buy alcohol on behalf of children. It was a successful day which received a warm welcome and excellent feedback from local businesses and residents.

Period Reports

The Reading Community Alcohol Partnership is clearly very active around the town and it’s good to hear that its multi-agency approach is aiming to tackle underage drinking through direct engagement with young people, enforcing the law with regard to underage consumption and proxy purchasing, and maintaining a constructive dialogue with businesses and retailers.
