The City Centre Bar Project in Nyköping

The project focused on general objectives which have primarily involved reducing levels of drinking to excess at the bars and restaurants and reducing levels of violence on and around these premises. Efforts have also been made to reduce drug abuse at the bars and restaurants and the extent to which alcohol is served to under-age persons.

The project is run by the police and local public sector agencies in collaboration with local restaurateurs. The principal measures introduced have been: training door staff and bar and waiting staff in the safe handling of alcohol, intensified police controls in the bars and restaurants, increased levels of collaboration between police, bars and restaurants and the social services, and inspections of the physical conditions on the premises concerned.
