The Office of Liquor, Gaming & Racing (OLGR) today released the latest list of the State’s most violent venues which will face a range of tough operating conditions.
Round 11 of the violent venues list, based on Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) data for 2013, names 23 venues for excessive numbers of violent incidents.
There are three Level 1 venues on the latest list after recording 19 or more violent incidents last year. They are Ivy in the Sydney CBD (24 incidents), The Macarthur Tavern at Campbelltown (24 incidents), and the Roxy Hotel at Parramatta (21 incidents).
These three venues will face the toughest operating conditions from June 1 including a 1.30am lockout, drink restrictions, bans on glass, alcohol time-outs, and extra security measures.
Another 20 venues across the State have recorded between 12 and 18 incidents to be classified as Level 2 violent premises and will also face extra conditions.
Another 10 licensed venues have been removed from the list after recording welcome reductions in alcohol-related violence.
