The Behave or Be Banned (BOBB) scheme has proved effective in combatting drunken and violent behaviour in Welshpool in recent years, with Dyfed-Powys Police now saying it will be relaunched across the whole force area.

The scheme sees people banned from pubs, clubs and bars for bad behaviour, and it has been relaunched ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend.

Chief Inspector Mark McSweeney said: “BOBB is an effective tool to help prevent, reduce and combat alcohol-related offences within communities. 

“If anyone is arrested for a crime of violence, disorder or anti-social behaviour in licensed premises, or after leaving a licensed establishment in the Scheme, they will be banned from not just that licensed premises, but all licensed premises that display the Behave or Be Banned sign within the area.

“The message is simple – Behave or Be Banned! In addition, if someone is a persistent nuisance for a licensee but their behaviour doesn’t merit arrest, licensees can also put them forward to receive a ban from all licensed premises.”

Problem customers are banned not just from the one pub but all those in the area that have signed up. It also tackles underage drinking and the use and supply of drugs.

Mr McSweeney added: “BOBB works. It is not uncommon to see people being more concerned about whether they can get into a pub with their friends than they are about being arrested. 

“Licensees will not tolerate anti-social behaviour in their premises and BOBB keeps such people out, making it safer and more enjoyable for everyone else.”

Dyfed-Powys Police’s summer campaign - #EnjoyDPP – encourages people to enjoy what the area has to offer, safely and with respect for others.
