The role of local authority licensing officers is to take the lead in ensuring that pubs, clubs and festivals are organised and run in a way that maximises the safety of customers and staff. They are responsible for monitoring the way that premises are run and enforcing compliance with the law
It is good practice for licensing officers, fire officers, and their colleagues from the police services to co-ordinate their relevant work and enforcement efforts and to ensure that pubs, clubs and festivals playing music that is attractive to people who may take drugs as part of their night out, receive appropriate inspection visits. The risks of harm, and ultimately of fatalities, are highest at such premises.
