    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


    The growth of the night-time economy in many cities has resulted in heightened concern about associated crime and disorder, especially that of alcohol-related violence. The Tackling Alcohol-related Street Crime (TASC) project was a police-led multi-agency scheme aimed at reducing alcohol-related crime and disorder in Cardiff and Cardiff Bay. It involved a range of interventions including dialogue between the police and the licensed trade,measures aimed at improving the quality and behaviour of door staff, targeted policing operations and support for victims of alcohol-related assaults.

    The project was associated with an overall decrease in alcohol-related assaults in Cardiff and Cardiff Bay. There were also significant reductions in violence and disorder associated with specific clubs against which targeted policing operations took place. This report describes the project and its main outcomes and highlights key examples of good practice for those seeking to implement similar projects.
