This poster explains the consequences of being served a 'barring order' by licensees, responsible persons or Victoria Police.
Barring orders can be served on drunk, violent or quarrelsome patrons.
Once a person is served with a barring order, they must leave the venue and its vicinity immediately and cannot return until the barring order expires. If a person does not comply with the barring order, Victoria Police may issue them with an on-the-spot fine.
This poster is voluntary for licensees to display on their licensed premises.
This poster advises patrons that the venue provides free water. Offering free water is an important part of the responsible service of alcohol as it helps patrons slow down their rate of intoxication and provide an alternative to consuming alcohol.
Licensed venues that supply alcohol for consumption on-site are required to provide free drinking water to their patrons.
If you would like a copy for digital displays, download the high resolution version.
