Alcohol Free Zone in Central Bedford

An area of central Bedford is subject to an Alcohol Consumption in Designated Public Places Order under the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001. This is locally called an Alcohol Free Zone.

 

Within an Alcohol Free Zone it is an offence to continue to drink alcohol when warned to stop by a Police Constable.  The Police also have powers to confiscate alcohol from those committing this offence.   The Police do not have these same powers outside of the Zone.
