North Wales Police launch "The Wrong Choice"Crimestoppers logo

09/07/2012

Police in Llandudno are screening a DVD showing the consequences of under 18 year olds using fake ID to get into pubs and clubs.  In response to the increased use of fake ID by young people to get into pubs and clubs in the area local Police working with licensees and students at Ysgol John Brights decided to make a video showing the consequences of using, or allowing your ID to be used by another and of course the risks young people take when they consume alcohol.

 

Local students feature in the film which shows what happens when a young person purports to be 18, then are arrested when their age is discovered and placed in a cell ( this can happen as a last resort) and are then banned from pubs and clubs when they actually turn 18.  The person supplying the fake ID is also banned.

 

The launch is being supported by local licensees and representatives from The Boulevard and 147 as well as last years High Sherriff for Clwyd Lloyd Fitzhugh OBE JP DL who will be present.

 

John Bright’s School, Llandudno will host the official launch at 6pm on Thursday July 12th in the conference room.   After the screening the DVD will be distributed to all secondary schools in Conwy and Denbighshire initially with a view to eventually being taken forward for whole of North Wales

 

Local Inspector Ian Verburg said “The local students have done a great job and I hope their efforts are rewarded by the message being well received.  They have all given feedback that they learned a lot and were not aware of the consequences of using fake ID.  This initiative supports one of the main Licensing objectives to keep young people safe from harm.”
