AHA director pays visit to local hoteliers

AHA NSW director of liquor and policing John Green was in the Far West on Tuesday, meeting with local hoteliers to discuss a range of issues in Broken Hill.

Mr Green spoke at the AHA NSW Barrier Sub-Branch meeting at the Tydvil Hotel on Tuesday afternoon. His visit comes as independent Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) figures reveal assaults on licensed premises are down a mammoth 60.5 percent since 2011 – the lowest on record for the Barrier region.

“This is an amazing result,” Mr Green said. “The drop is testimony to the dedication of locals who have worked hard with police and the wider community over the last few years.”

“The message from local hoteliers is a simple one – anti-social behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated in venues. That message is obviously having an impact in the Broken Hill area.”

Mr Green said the trip was a chance to speak to local publicans directly about issues.

“It’s all about listening first-hand to the concerns of local hoteliers, while at the same time informing them about state-wide issues that impact them,” he said.
