It would appear drinking establishments in Red Deer are doing a better job at following the law, according to the RCMP.

The Red Deer Public Safety Compliance Team paid surprise visits to 14 drinking establishments on Dec. 21, this time no charges were laid. Members of the PCST told RCMP that there has been a noticeable improvement among Red Deer businesses in adhering to the rules and protocols, when compared to when the PCST was first formed.

The PCST was formed earlier this year to address concerns at drinking establishments in Red Deer. The team is both prevention and enforcement based and strives to improve the safety of staff and patrons. They also aim to reduce the negative impact these establishments have on the community.

The team was formed out of a partnership between the Red Deer City RCMP, Red Deer City fire department, Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission Red Deer Branch and the Red Deer Inspection and Licensing Department.

In their inspections the team works to reduce the cases of over service alcohol, serving under aged people, fire code violations, exceeding occupancy limits and escalating violence.

Police said the PCST will continue with unannounced inspections throughout the new year.
