Test Purchasing In Gosport

Alert message sent 08/02/2019 14:49:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

Juvenile test purchases were carried out at pubs and shops across Gosport last Sunday. Of the ten premises tested, five failed. PNDs and community resolutions were issued.
PC Jason Pearce, of Hampshire’s Licensing Team, said: “All failing premises will receive follow up engagement to help assess their processes and procedures along with recommendations to help make improvements.
“Documented training, till systems, refusals & ID check logs are all basics that should be in place but are all too often not.
“Failing premises will be re-tested and a further failure will result in more robust intervention - but at this time we seek to help educate to work with the premises.
“Overall this is a poor test with premises very complacent about age verification.”
