The number of hotels and bars on the NSW Government’s violent venues list has fallen from 15 to eight over the past six months.
The improved results are part of a longer-term downward trend in the level of violent incidents at licensed venues. There has been a fall of almost 90 per cent - from 1,270 to 146 - in the number of violent incidents at listed venues since 2008.
On the latest list, two venues are on the most restrictive level one category, while six venues are on level two.
The list reflects the number of violent incidents at venues over a 12-month period. Venues with 12 or more incidents make the list and are subject to strict conditions and increased monitoring by Liquor & Gaming NSW.
The violent venues scheme is a strong incentive for venues to reduce the level of violent incidents so patrons can enjoy safer nights out.
