"What Happens When They Turn 21? Addressing Over-service of Alcohol" by Sheila Nesbitt
November 13, 2018 at 2pm CST
Campuses often have strong efforts to prevent underage drinking among college students, but what happens when they turn 21? This webinar will describe two promising strategies to address over-service of alcohol in retail settings.
POLD seeks to identify the location where a person last consumed alcohol when they are involved in an alcohol-related incident (DUI, assaults, and other offenses). Through identifying problem trends, law enforcement has been able to direct patrols and work with retailers to address serving practices and eventually reduce alcohol-related incidents in the community. In conjunction with POLD, conducting observations of retail establishments to identify serving practices and provide feedback to retailers can help promote responsible service and reduce over-service of alcohol. Learn how a local coalition along with law enforcement worked together to implement strategies to address over service. Click here to learn more about this training!
