Port Macquarie liquor venues can officially ring ahead to notify each other of troublemakers under the Hastings Liquor Accord mobile phone trial.
Seven venues in the Port Macquarie area will be given pre-paid mobile phones to refuse entry to violent or intoxicated patrons as part of the HLA trial expected to begin this month (June).
The plan to provide the Settlers Inn Hotel, Finnian's Tavern, The Lounge Room, Panthers Port Macquarie, Altitude Nightclub, Port Macquarie Hotel and The Beach House with mobile phones was confirmed at a HLA meeting on June 17.
It had previously been discussed at a HLA meeting in March.
HLA president Alistair Flower said the system would give better communication to venues in creating an at-the-door network.
"Each of them will have a phone given to them and a phone number to facilitate communication among ourselves," said Mr Flower.
"That will be something we can commence next week.
"They can inform each other about intoxicated or undesirables going between venues so that we can communicate better among ourselves.
"Everything we doing at HLA is about collaborating as one voice and supporting each other.
"We are acting as one voice to promote responsibility, accountability, alcohol awareness and the safety of everyone."
The HLA has previously approved the use of a Barred Patrons List which warns listed members of the public from entering member venues and can result in trespass charges being laid by police.
Sergeant John Lawrie from Port Macquarie Police said venues were taking action against potential assaults related to licensed premises.
"We're all working together to try and keep people with a propensity for violence when they've been drinking, out of licensed venues," said Sgt Lawrie.
