It's D-DAY for licensees
IT'S D-DAY for businesses planning for this year's July Racing Carnival.
At 10.30am at the Crown Hotel businesses involved in the Grafton Liquor Accord will attend a meeting, armed with their plans for entertainment and security.
Secretary of the Liquor Accord Leanne Brien said police, officials from the Office of Liquor Gaming and Racing and court officers would address the meeting.
Ms Brien said the police and OLGR officials would outline the new three-strikes policy for entertainment venues.
"We used to have a three-tier system and this is changing to a three-strike policy,"
"It used to be based on the number of assaults at a venue," she said. "The number of assaults determined which tier you were on.
"We're going to talk about what the new system means at the meeting today."
