Drugs, alcohol fuel violence

A COMBINATION of drugs and alcohol is a major contributor to street violence and antisocial behaviour in Orange, according to Australian Hotels Association (AHA) chief executive officer Paul Nicolaou.

“Orange is no different to anywhere else in Australia and while our members continue to work hard ensuring there’s security and strong compliance, people need to take responsibility for their own actions,” he said.

Yesterday Mr Nicolaou was in Orange to address a meeting of the Orange Liquor Accord.
