Drunks who cause havoc in bars and clubs on Broad Street, Birmingham will be banned from all venues in the city's entertainment district if a new "zero tolerance" scheme is approved. The Broad Street working party, which was set up to fight disorder on Birmingham's "golden mile", is looking at a scheme to circulate the identities of troublemakers circulated among bars and nightclubs. Doormen would be made aware of incidents of disorder as soon as they broke out in neighbouring bars and would then be able to stop potential troublemakers at the door. The proposals would also see pictures of troublemakers circulated around licensees so all premises on Broad Street can bar them simultaneously. The plan was discussed at the first meeting of the Broad Street Steering Group last week. Jonathan Cheetham, chairman of the City Centre Partnership and a member of the steering group, said a similar scheme had already been used to stamp out crime in the city's shopping district. The Retail Crime Organisation, a partnership between retail stores which circulate pictures and evidence of offenders in the city centre, had helped traders and police cut crime by 30% in the city centre, Cheetham said. He said: "We are looking at extending the RCO to entertainment establishments. "This would mean that if one person was causing trouble in one venue then information could be transmitted to every bar immediately." David Maxted, head of the Broad Street Steering Group, said: "There is no firm proposal at present, although it does seem to have some merit and we will be exploring it further in the future."
