 One Punch Header 850x400

The Constabulary’s “One punch can change two lives” campaign reminds party-goers of the consequences of losing control through alcohol consumption. This is part of our on-going “Think before you drink” force-wide campaign.

Remember:

• Know your limits and always stay in control
• Avoid drinking in rounds, it’s easy to have too much when trying to keep up with others
• Recognise the signs that it’s time to slow down, consider alternating between alcoholic and soft drinks
• Stick with your friends and look out for each other
• Walk away from arguments and confrontation, a drunken argument or fight could end up someone getting seriously hurt and / or arrested. This could possibly cost you your career, your relationship and your freedom.
• If confrontation arises, be responsible seek out security staff or a Police Officer and make them aware of the issue
• Have fun and enjoy your night out

The Constabulary’s “One punch can change two lives” campaign reminds party-goers of the consequences of losing control through alcohol consumption. This is part of our on-going “Think before you drink” force-wide campaign.

Chief Superintendent Steve Johnson said: “We want everyone to enjoy the festive season and it is a great time to get together but we remind people to drink within their limits and remain in control. It can be easy to get carried away with the atmosphere, but having that awareness will mean that your night is a good one.

“The consequences of drinking too much and becoming vulnerable or overstepping the mark can spoil your Christmas. As well as risking becoming a victim of crime, you could risk getting into trouble by a situation quickly escalating into violence or disorder. It’s not worth the risk. Enjoy drinks with friends but know your limits. Go too far and you can spoil your Christmas before it’s begun - you could see yourself banned from all Pubwatch bars and clubs or even under arrest.”
