  • Liquor Outlet Concentrations and Alcohol-related Neighbourhood Problems
    • Abstract: Donnelly, Neil; Poynton, Suzanne; Weatherburn, Don; Bamford, Errol; Nottage, JustinNew South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
      This bulletin presents the results of research investigating the relationship between the concentration of licensed premises in a given area and perceptions of alcohol-related problems in that locale. For this purpose, a secondary analysis of the National Crime and Safety Survey (2002) was conducted using data from survey participants who resided in NSW. This investigation examined three outcomes: (1) reported problems with drunkenness in the neighbourhood, (2) reported problems with property damage in the neighbourhood and (3) assault victimisation in the home. Two measures of alcohol outlet concentration were constructed for this analysis and included as independent variables: (1) liquor outlet accessibility and (2) liquor outlet density. Multilevel modelling of these data showed that respondents who lived closer to liquor outlets were more likely to report problems in their neighbourhood from drunkenness and property damage, controlling for socio-demographic factors. The analysis also showed that respondents who lived in areas with a higher density of licensed premises were more likely to report problems in their neighbourhood from drunkenness, again controlling for socio-demographic factors. It was not possible to apply multilevel modelling to assess the relationship between domestic assault victimisation and either of the alcohol outlet concentration measures due to the relatively low number of assaults in the sample which were reported as having occurred at home. The implications of these findings for liquor licensing policy in NSW are discussed.

  • Young Adults’ Experience of Responsible Service Practice in NSW: An
           Update
    • Abstract: Scott, LindaNew South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
      This bulletin presents results from research investigating whether the provision of responsible service of alcohol (RSA) initiatives by licensed premises staff in NSW has changed since 2002. This research involved repeating in 2006 a telephone survey originally conducted in 2002. A sample of 2,427 young adults were asked about their last drinking occasion at a licensed premises. This included whether or not they were showing any of five different signs of intoxication and, if so, whether they had received any of seven different RSA initiatives from licensed premises staff. On both survey occasions over half of the respondents who reported drinking at acute risk levels for alcohol-related harm reported that the last such occasion had occurred at a licensed premises. There was no change in the percentage of these respondents who reported showing at least one sign of intoxication in 2006 compared with 2002 (around 56 per cent), however there was a modest reduction in 2006 in the percentage who reported showing three or more signs (15 versus 19 per cent). There was a significant increase in the provision of responsible service practice to those who reported showing three or more signs of intoxication from 12 per cent in 2002 to 28 per cent in 2006. The majority of this more intoxicated group, however, still reported that they were continued to be served alcohol (54 per cent in 2006). No significant change was found between 2002 and 2006 in non-intoxicated patrons reporting having seen intoxicated patrons receive RSA interventions from licensed premises staff, though around one half did report seeing such RSA practice. This research suggests that since 2002 there has been some improvement in the provision of RSA practice to more intoxicated patrons at licensed premises in NSW. However, given that over one half of this more intoxicated group still report being continued alcohol service, it is critical that efforts to increase the provision of RSA practice by bar staff be continued.

  • Young Adults' Experience of Responsible Service Practice in NSW
    • Abstract: Donnelly, Neil; Briscoe, SuzanneNational Drug Research Institute (Australia); New South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.; National Drug Research Institute (Australia); New South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
      Findings from a recent NSW survey of 18 to 39 year olds who report drinking at at-risk levels for acute alcohol-related harm are presented. It was found that over half of those who consume alcohol in this age group reported that their last location of at-risk drinking occurred at a licensed premises. Of these, over half reported showing at least one sign of intoxication, while almost one in five reported showing at least three signs of intoxication. Only 10 per cent of those reporting signs of intoxication also reported that they had experienced responsible service initiatives from licensed premises staff, while over half of these 'intoxicated' patrons reported that they were continued to be served alcohol. Of particular concern was the finding that as the number of signs of intoxication increased, so did the likelihood of continued alcohol service. While these results suggest that intoxicated patrons are not being refused service as often as they should, there was evidence for some degree of responsible service provision with around half of the 'non-intoxicated' patrons reporting that they had seen licensed premises staff intervene with other 'intoxicated' patrons.

  • Liquor Licensing Enforcement Activity in New South Wales
    • Abstract: Briscoe, Suzanne; Donnelly, NeilNew South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
      This bulletin is the first attempt to provide a comprehensive analysis of liquor licensing enforcement in NSW. Four relevant data sources were accessed for this study; court proceedings, Liquor Administration Board conferences, police infringement notices and NSW Department of Gaming and Racing infringement and compliance notices. In 2001, the most recent year for which complete data was available, 4,619 enforcement actions were initiated under the NSW liquor laws. A large percentage of this enforcement activity was concentrated on patrons or minors, with over one-quarter of enforcement actions being against patrons for failing to leave a licensed venue and 14 per cent being against persons under the age of 18. Just 147 (3.1%) breaches for conduct offences were recorded by enforcement agencies in 2001. Data quality issues are noted throughout the bulletin and barriers to enforcement of the NSW liquor laws are discussed.

  • Impact of Increased Drink-driving Penalties on Recidivism Rates in NSW,

    • Abstract: Briscoe, SuzanneNew South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
      This bulletin examines the implementation and deterrent effect of legislation that increased the statutory penalties for drink-driving offences in NSW in 1998. Examination of drink-driving offences brought before the Local Court in 1997 and 1999 showed that, after the legislation was enacted, there was a significant increase in the severity of penalties drink-drivers received on conviction. Comparisons of drink-drivers sentenced before and after the legislative amendments also revealed a significant reduction in reoffending after these penalties were increased. This reduction in recidivism was, however, confined to offenders who resided outside of the Sydney metropolitan area.

  • Assaults on Licensed Premises in Inner-urban Areas
    • Abstract: Briscoe, Suzanne; Donnelly, NeilNational Drug Research Institute (Australia); New South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.; National Drug Research Institute (Australia); New South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
      The present bulletin examines police-recorded assault incidents on licensed premises in the inner-urban areas of Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong. Findings from this analysis suggest that a small number of problematic licensed premises are associated with a disproportionate amount of violence. In inner Sydney 12 per cent of hotels accounted for almost 60 per cent of all assaults on hotel premises, in Newcastle 8 per cent of licensed premises accounted for nearly 80 per cent of all assaults on licensed premises and in Wollongong 6 per cent of licensed premises accounted for 67 per cent of all on-premises assaults. The analysis also found that assault incidents on licensed premises were concentrated late at night or early in the morning and on weekends. Licence types identified as being the most problematic for violence on licensed premises were hotels and nightclubs. In particular, hotels with extended or 24-hour trading recorded a greater number of assaults compared with those trading standard hours. Other characteristics of licensed premises previously identified as being associated with harm are discussed.

Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.; National Centre for Research into the Prevention of Drug Abuse (Australia); New South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
      The purpose of this bulletin is to review research exploring the relationship between alcohol and crime, and to examine patterns of alcohol-related crime arising from New South Wales police records. The number of assault, offensive behaviour and malicious damage to property incidents flagged by police as being alcohol-related are included in this analysis. Characteristics of alcohol-related crime, such as where and when it is most likely to occur, as well as the gender and age of persons typically involved, are also reported. Strategies to reduce alcohol-related crime and important areas for future research arising from these findings are discussed.

  • Costing Alcohol-related Injuries Presenting to St Vincent’s Hospital
           Emergency Department: A Methodological Note
    • Abstract: Poynton, Suzanne; Donnelly, Neil; Weatherburn, Don; Fulde, Gordian; Scott, LindaNew South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
      The purpose of this bulletin is to describe a methodology for calculating the short-term costs associated with alcohol-related injuries presenting to St Vincent's Emergency Department (ED). This costing analysis was part of a larger study undertaken at St Vincent's ED in 2004/05, which examined the role of alcohol in injury events. The NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research has published the substantive findings from this research in an accompanying Alcohol Studies Bulletin (see Poynton et al. 2005). The current bulletin provides the methodological detail that underpinned the calculations used to derive the costing estimates in this emergency department investigation.

    • Abstract: Poynton, Suzanne; Donnelly, Neil; Weatherburn, Don; Fulde, Gordian; Scott, LindaNew South Wales. Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research.
      This bulletin presents the results from research investigating the role of alcohol in injury presentations to an inner-city emergency department and the associated short-term economic costs. In this study injured patients attending St Vincent's Hospital Emergency Department during September 2004 and February 2005 were interviewed about their alcohol consumption prior to the injury event and where possible, administered a breathalyser test. One-third of the injured patients interviewed reported consuming alcohol prior to the injury and almost two-thirds of these patients stated that they had been drinking at licensed premises. Alcohol consumption was found to be more prevalent amongst patients presenting with injuries resulting from interpersonal violence, with almost two-thirds of these patients reporting that they had been drinking prior to the injury. The estimated annual cost of alcohol to St Vincent's Emergency Department was as much as $1.38 million. While the overall economic cost of alcohol-related injuries is probably much greater than our estimate indicates, the research described here highlights the resources that could be devoted to other illness and disease if a proportion of alcohol-related injuries were reduced.
