The Licensing Act 2003: Enhancing Safety and Security in Licensed Premises

Course Background

The Licensing Act 2003 (the Act) underscores the importance of promoting four statutory licensing objectives, which must be meticulously considered in all licensing functions.

These four crucial licensing objectives are:

  1. Public Safety
  2. The Prevention of Public Nuisance
  3. The Protection of Children from Harm
  4. The Prevention of Crime and Disorder

Crime Prevention Awareness Training

Our Crime Prevention Awareness Training course is expertly crafted to provide staff with a comprehensive understanding of the types of crimes that can occur, particularly within licensed premises and the entertainment industry. Participants will gain valuable insights into how social settings that attract a diverse crowd can also lure both motivated and opportunistic offenders. As patrons unwind and socialise, their vigilance towards potential criminal threats often decreases, creating opportunities for crime.

Course Purpose

This half-day training course is designed to demonstrate that small, proactive measures can significantly impact crime prevention. By enhancing their awareness and recognising signs of potential criminal behaviour, participants can actively deter criminal activities. The course provides an in-depth understanding of the various tactics used by criminals, emphasises the importance of early intervention, and encourages positive engagement with customers to minimise the impact and incidence of crime in licensed premises.

Training Delivery

Our Crime Prevention Awareness Training is delivered in a relaxed, informal, and adaptable setting, prioritising questions and fostering discussions. The learning experience is highly interactive, incorporating various exercises to educate and motivate participants.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Engage in open discussions about prevalent crimes in the licensed premises industry.
  • Analyse crime statistics and figures specific to the licensed premises sector.
