The Night Time Industries Association is calling for the Home Office to carry out a full inquiry into ‘Drink Spiking”.
The Inquiry will allow members of the public to understand the breadth of the issue and consider the key characteristics of these crimes from historical reporting and evidence. This will include who is being targeted, the settings that these crimes take place within, as well as toxicology details to collectively stamp spiking out.
Michael Kill NTIA CEO says:
“The NTIA are concerned about the reported increase in the number of spiking incidents taking place across the country, it goes without saying that everyone should be able to enjoy a night out without fearing for their own safety. We have publicly called for an inquiry by the Home Office into this issue, so we can gain some clarity on the scope and gravity of the situation.”
“Operators across the country have been working with the police, local authorities and key stakeholders, focusing on safeguarding customers, particularly women, at night. There is a lot that we as a sector are already doing to try to tackle drink spiking, and we take our responsibility very seriously”
