Implementation and Outcome Evaluation of a Community-Developed Enforcement Initiative

Principal Investigator(s):

Traci Toomey, Professor, School of Public Health

Project summary:

When bars and restaurants serve alcohol to people who are already drunk, the risk of problems such as traffic crashes and assaults increase. Researchers are evaluating the effectiveness of a strategy used by police where they collect information from persons involved in alcohol-related incidents about the place where they last drank alcohol. Police can then intervene with reported bars and restaurants to prevent this type of alcohol service and related problems.
