Police across Powys took part in a day of action last Friday tackling under-age drinking and the use of fake identification cards.

Officers took part in an operation led by the licensing officer and police sergeants alongside the Newtown and Brecon Alcohol Community Partnerships schemes.

Matthew Knight the CAP Co-Ordinator for both schemes said: “CAP fully supports Dyfed-Powys Police in running this operation. Nationally this is an issue that is faced by premises license holders across the country and operations like this are a pro-active step to tackle the issue as well as alcohol abuse by young persons.”

Chief Inspector Rhiannon Ivens accompanied officers during the operation, engaging with licensee’s, door staff and street pastors.

She said: “It was a pleasure to work with staff, partners and stakeholders and talk to residents out enjoying the festive celebrations.

“We found people to be in good spirits and reassured to see their local officers out on patrol and keeping them safe.

“It was a pleasure to catch up with some of our street pastors who do such wonderful work in the community and care deeply about providing a reassuring presence.”
