BLACK eyes and ripped shirts can be the aftermath of a big night on the turps - but it doesn't have to be.

Warwick Police have joined with the Horse and Jockey Hotel Motel in a One Punch Can Kill campaign to drive home the message that alcohol-fuelled violence would not be tolerated.

H&J manager Gary Lawrence said the pub was the last port of call for most Warwick revellers, being the only venue open until 2am, and by this time patrons could be highly intoxicated.

"Everyone's a hero when they've got a bit of alcohol in their system, so we want to tell them to pull your head in, behave and have a good time," Mr Lawrence said.

"It's to drive home the message that one punch really can kill."

Patrons will receive a wristband as a point of entry which signals they have had their ID checked and assessed for intoxication.

When ordering a drink, if staff do not observe a wristband they will not be served and security has the right to remove their bands if they are cut off from the bar.

Crime prevention officer Constable Wendy Tamblyn said the campaign was to help reduce alcohol-fuelled violence in and around public places.

"It's about educating every patron who walks through that door that violence will not be tolerated," Const Tamblyn said. "It's to make it a safer venue."

The campaign will run up until December.
