Tabled in Parliament on 21 May 2013


The two‑year Drink Safe Precincts trial commenced in 2010 and was later extended to September 2013. Its aim was to reduce alcohol‑related violence and improve community safety in three of the largest entertainment precincts in Queensland. The trial was intended to deliver a heightened enforcement presence and support services for patrons and to maintain existing levels of enforcement of licensing conditions and laws.


We examined the planning, implementation and evaluation of the trial and whether it achieved its intended outcomes.
