Alcohol Control and Enforcement

Many of the most effective public health efforts involve the implementation and enforcement of laws and policies. Preventing underage drinking and drinking and driving are good examples of ways in which law enforcement can prevent death, injury and illness.

PIRE has carried out many projects to develop and evaluate enforcement strategies, including sobriety checkpoints, enforcement of sales to intoxicated patrons, and compliance checks to enforce laws against alcohol sales to minors. PIRE also provides training to law enforcement leadership and line officers in efficient and effective application of these strategies.  

The PIRE Center for the Study of Law and Enforcement Policy supports APIS, a national database of laws and enforcement policy.  It also houses the National Center for Alcohol Law Enforcement.

The PIRE Center for Public Health Improvement and Innovation houses the Underage Drinking Enforcement Training Center.
