Bid to combat binge drinking

26th September 2007

In one of the first schemes of its kind, alcohol support workers have been allowed to interview suspects in police cells in a bid to combat binge drinking and alcohol-related crime.

More than 1,000 suspects in Plymouth have already taken part in the scheme that aims to find out if a suspect has a drink problem and offer advice about how to get help. The suspects are assessed in their cells, usually the morning after they have been arrested.
