STRATHCLYDE Police have officially launched the latest initiative to tackle drink related anti-social problems in Cumbernauld.

On Monday 5th November officer from Cumbernauld Police Station officially launched the beginning of the ‘Bottle Watch’ campaign in the Carbrain area of Cumbernauld.

The campaign, which is running in conjunction with licensed grocers, will see tamper proof stickers placed on bottles of alcohol to allow officers to keep track of where they were purchased.

The idea behind the project is that the scheme will tackle the issue of underage drinking, deter drinking in public places, and help identify hotspot areas for antisocial behaviour.

The partnership initiative is funded by NHS Lanarkshire and is supported by North Lanarkshire Council.
