Community How To Guide On Underage Drinking Prevention: Enforcement.
National Association of Governors' Highway Safety Representatives.
This guide details what coalitions and organizations need to do to insure the enforcement and judicial communities are active partners in the effort to reduce underage drinking. One of the first tasks discussed is the necessity for groups to understand the needs and concerns of law enforcement and to recognize that underage drinking enforcement differs from traditional enforcement methods. There may be obstacles that deter the effective enforcement of underage drinking laws and this booklet describes several of the most common along with proposed solutions. The booklet also discusses how to keep underage drinking enforcement a priority. In addition, successful underage drinking enforcement strategies that have been used in other communities are described and contact information provided in the resource section. Finally, the booklet describes how to involve the judicial community, which is a key to an effective underage drinking enforcement strategy. (GCP)
