Copenhagen Police Bans Criminals From Local Nightlife

The ban starts on 14th September and includes anyone with previous convictions, including armed offences.

Police in the Danish capital have announced new plans to block people with a criminal record, especially malicious crimes, from entering ‘dedicated nightlife zones’.

The ban begins on 14th September and lasts for at least two years – ending in 2023 at the earliest. The ban applies to people with previous convictions, including armed offences.

There will be four ‘zones’ in total, located close to the centre of Copenhagen, including streets Gothersgade, Vestergade, Vesterbrogade and Kødbyen.

Copenhagen Police director Anne Tønnes says: “The law enables exchange of information about persons with nightlife bans with bar owners. But we are currently waiting for more detailed information on how this will take place in practice.”

Adding: the implementation of zones has “no practical significance” for “normal, law-abiding citizens” and stating it will only serve to “create a more secure nightlife environment for everyone.”

Copenhagen Police will rely on regular patrols of the dedicated areas and tip-offs from the public to enforce the ban. Criminals who choose to ignore the warning risk facing a fine of 10,000 kroner for a first offence and up to 30 days in prison for repeat offences.
