Warwickshire Police is piloting a scheme encouraging kids to eliminate fake identification cards.

Anybody discovered utilizing a fake ID in Kenilworth can be allowed to hand it in voluntarily without threat of a fine.

Officers are working with Kenilworth Faculty which has put up posters discouraging pupils utilizing the cards.

The effects of alcohol consumption are being discussed in school with workers warning pupils that utilizing fake ID might get them into trouble with the police.
The playing cards are bought on web sites sometimes costing from £10 to £50.


‘Anti-social behaviour’

Acting Sgt Chris Cambray mentioned: “Young folks throughout the country use fake IDs to purchase alcohol or enter premises licensed for the over 18s.

“In Kenilworth we consider the consumption of alcohol that follows has led to an increase in anti-social behaviour in the town.

“This is not acceptable and by lowering the means to acquire alcohol and in addition by reminding licensees to examine all IDs robustly we hope to cut back nuisance in the town.”

Police warn the Forgeries Act of 1861 means mentioned anybody discovered utilizing fake ID might receive a big fine and a felony record for life.

Anybody promoting alcohol to underage kids runs the chance of a fine and the withdrawal of their licence to promote alcohol.
