Responding to Drink Spiking
Time & Location
About the Event
This is not a new issue. The pernicious activity of drink spiking has been evident in the night time economy for years. However, we are at a time when the pandemic has created long-standing concerns around staff shortages in the security industry and has heightened the vulnerability of younger people returning to nightclubs after a long absence.
In recent weeks a spate of high-profile cases have emerged across the UK leading many to question how safe revellers, young girls in particular, are on nights out.
The emergency meeting of the Purple Flag Forum is designed to understand the extent of the issue and draw upon best practice to protect people and businesses from this disturbing activity.
This meeting is open to all ATCM members whether their managed areas are Purple Flag accredited or not.
