“Alcohol-fuelled violence continues to be a major problem for local communities around NSW (Australia).
For emergency service workers such as doctors, nurses, paramedics and police officers – the people on the front-line of dealing with aggressive drunks – alcohol-fuelled violence is a constant occupational hazard.
That’s why four major organisations representing emergency service workers in NSW banded together to form the Last Drinks campaign. The campaign is seeking to tackle the issue of alcohol-fuelled violence head-on, by challenging the 24/7 drinking culture that has permeated modern Australian society.
The Last Drinks campaign has been seeking to have the Newcastle model extended to other parts of NSW. If it works in Newcastle, it can work in other areas with similar problems.”
