Grant fund the trial programme to provide equipment to allow breathalysing on entry to venues in Cambridge City Centre by venue security staff
March 27th, 2015
To approve £5,000 contribution from the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Community Safety Grant Fund 2014/15 underspend.
Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Cambridge Business Against Crime have been exploring the option of funding for security staff to use breathalysing devices at the entrances to venues in Cambridge City Centre on a trial basis.
Twenty devices, one per venue, are proposed across Cambridge City to prevent intoxicated members of the public choosing their drinking venue to avoid the devices. A Service Level Agreement would be put in place for each venue to state that they are responsible for any repair or replacement costs and also the cost of annual calibration.
The proposed £5,000 contribution will be funded from the Police and Crime Commissioner’s (“the Commissioner”) Community Safety Grant Fund 2014/15 underspend. However the funding would need to be supplied to the project by the end of March 2015.
The Commissioner agreed to the funding at the Business Coordination Board (“the Board”) meeting on the 24th March 2015. The paper presented to the Board is published on the Commissioner’s website at:
