POLICE have launched a week-long campaign to highlight the difficulties of dealing with drunkenness and alcohol-fuelled violence.

The In Focus: Alcohol Harm initiative is part of a national campaign launched by Lancashire Constabulary which will see police forces across the country patrolling drinking hotspots as the college and university fresher’s season gets underway.

In Lancashire it will see officers join forces with other agencies, including local authorities, Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service and the health service, to carry out test purchasing operations, visit schools to give talks on the dangers associated with consuming alcohol and work with licensed premises.

Supt Stuart Noble will be hosting a Facebook chat on the Lancashire Constabulary Facebook page today (Wednesday September 18) from 2pm until 3pm to answer questions.
