The implementation of Taxi Stewards in Dumfries was a new venture for the town and only made possible through funding obtained from Dumfries and Galloway Alcohol Drug Partnership along with the assistance of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Licensing Department and Police Scotland.
The festive season was a busy time for the night time economy, which obviously increases the demand on taxi services. This increased demand for taxi’s mixed with alcohol consumption can lead to conflict resulting in violence, damage to property and antisocial behaviour.
If you made use of the system or if you would like to share your view then please take a minute to give a little feedback: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TMKZZZS
The survey is to obtain your views on the service and ascertain the possibility of continuing this within Dumfries and extending to other areas within the region.
