North Wales Police launch "The Wrong Choice"
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
