THREE STRIKES REGISTER
The ‘three strikes’ scheme provides an opportunity for licensees and managers to review their business practices and any alcohol and security management plans to reduce the risk of incidents that can lead to liquor offences and strikes being incurred.
Licensees need to proactively manage any risks they may have in their business model, and implement appropriate remedial measures. This could include a higher level of security, better monitoring of patron service and consumption patterns, and greater vigilance in the refusal of service to patrons if they are approaching intoxication.
