WREXHAM County Borough Council launched Alcohol Control Zones throughout the area on Wednesday, April 1.
This enables accredited officers to control the consumption of liquor in public places.
People who fail to comply face having their booze seized, or even a fixed penalty fine or prosecution - the maximum fine on conviction is £500.
Cllr Aled Roberts, leader of Wrexham Council, said: “We are confident that the introduction of Alcohol Control Zones (ACZ) will
contribute significantly towards further reducing anti social behaviour and violent crime across the county borough.
“We have consulted widely on
this issue but are very eager to point out that in making an area an ACZ it does not mean that there is a blanket ban on drinking in public places.
“The consumption of alcohol in an area for picnics, concerts, fetes and festivals can still go ahead, but the enforcement powers may be directed at individuals whose consumption of
alcohol in these areas gives rise to anti-social behaviour.
“We are confident that this development will help make Wrexham a place where people can enjoy themselves and feel safe.”
The police and the Wrexham Association of Secondary Head teachers have expressed support for the scheme.
