A new Pubwatch scheme launched this week in Mountain Ash has already banned three people.
The scheme means that local licencees and off licences will work with us and the local council to tackle anti-social behaviour.
The members meet regularly with us and the council to discuss issues around licensing as well as people causing anti-social behaviour within the area – and whether to ban them from all member premises. 
At their first meeting they decided to ban three people. 
PC Darran Lloyd, licensing officer Cynon Valley, said: “Anti-social behaviour is an issue which can have a significant impact on a community and it can only be addressed with the co-operation of people and living and working in the area. We are therefore delighted that in Mountain Ash we now have a PubWatch scheme so we can all work together to make the town a safer place to be.” 
Mike Jacklin, co-ordinator of RCT and Merthyr Tydfil Business Crime Reduction Partnership said: “I was very impressed by the enthusiasm and determination, of the 14 members to make sure that this crime busting initiative will make Mountain Ash a safe place to visit and socialise in.”
