Law Enforcement

One of three alco sensors furnished law enforcement by the ASAP SPF SIG project.  ASAP IPFS also helped furnish video cameras for implementation of strategies to several law enforcement departments.

Law enforcement is a huge collaborator in all aspects of ASAP's work.  All law enforcement departments implemented regular bar checks with the SPF SIG project, and have been working with youth on regular alcohol compliance checks.  The Allamakee County Sheriff's Department took part in safety checkpoints and saturation patrols as well for the SPF SIG project.

Various law enforcement officers attend Responsible Beverage Server Trainings (TIPs) to give attendees the added benefit of their advice and experience.  Law enforcement have been huge contributors to the various mock accidents, panel presentations and Project Northland graduation events put on by ASAP.
