Searches for pair-production of supersymmetric particles under the assumption that R-parity is violated via a single dominant $LL{\bar
E}$, $LQ{\bar D}$ or ${\bar U} {\bar D} {\bar D}$ coupling are performed using the data collected by the ALEPH collaboration at centre-of-mass energies of 181-184 $\mbox {GeV}$. The observed candidate events in the data are in agreement with the Standard Model expectations. Upper limits on the production cross-sections and lower limits on the masses of charginos, sleptons, squarks and sneutrinos are derived.
