Research: exclusion schemes are a major factor in reducing ASB

Exclusion Schemes such as Shop- and Pubwatches have a major positive influence on local crime reduction and safety, according to a new study by Leeds Metropolitan University.

The study, led by Dr Alexandra Kenyon and Penny Wymer at Leeds Metropolitan and commissioned by National Pubwatch, gathered the views of over 1,000 licensees across the UK, evaluating the effectiveness and strengths of the schemes, the impact on crime reduction and community safety and examining how the National Pubwatch organisation can support and guide local schemes in the future.

Preliminary findings of the research show that 92 per cent of licensees agree that banning orders are an effective way of dealing with trouble-makers. Additionally, more than 80 per cent of the respondents agreed that the schemes help to create a safer local environment, and 62 per cent agreed that their local exclusion schemes contributed to a decrease in violence and disorder in their local area.
