ArcAngel voluntary code of conduct
As a customer visiting a licensed premise such as a pub, club or

manner and respecting other people in the
Premises, Towns and Cities with the ArcAngel accreditation have
a voluntary code of conduct which outlines the
expected behaviour of those visiting their premise(s) and is
promoted by officers who patrol during the evenings. This alerts
members of the public that they are expected to adhere to the
ArcAngel standards of behaviour.

Parents must take responsibility for their
children by making sure they behave in a responsible manner.
When a young person gets involved in underage drinking and
repeatedly commits offences there are now powers that can be used
to hold parents accountable for their behaviour.
ASBO’s and injunctions for parents can be obtained or the young
person can be placed on an Acceptable Behaviour Contract.
