As the government’s roadmap continues to unlock Kent Police, Canterbury is running a pilot campaign to tackle alcohol related anti-social behaviour in the city centre.

Working in partnership with Canterbury City Council, Canterbury District Watch, and the Business Improvement District (BID), the campaign aims to reduce alcohol related offences within Canterbury city centre.

It is understandable that after experiencing a long period in lockdown we may wish to meet friends and loved ones or visit new cities.

However, excessive drinking and intoxication can lead to an increase in violent offences. This behaviour impacts residents and visitors. It can be intimidating to see or experience such behaviour, and it may prevent them from enjoying an evening out in Canterbury.

We welcome all visitors, tourists and members of the local community to the city centre and we ask that you respect others while here.

If you do not do this you may be served a Community Protection Notice under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.

This means you could be excluded from licenced premises in Canterbury City centre.

You can find more information about privacy notices on our website.

If you have been arrested or issued with a Community Protection Notice and have concerns about alcohol issues or you are concerned for someone, please contact the Forward Trust on 01795 411780.
