Initiatives to address drink spiking in the UK

Bristol’s venues, Avon and Somerset Police, Bristol City Council, and Bristol City Centre BID are working together to fight drink spiking across Bristol.
The objective is to educate Bristol on the procedure of reporting and collecting evidence of drink spiking, in order to increase the prosecution rates of the people who carry out these crimes. They want to support venue teams to help them deal with any incidents and provide support to victims.
They have produced a guide which is designed to help venue teams understand the physical and psychological threat posed by drink tampering, spot suspicious activity and act when an incident may have occurred.
