Anaheim Police Department Receives Grant from Alcoholic Beverage Control


ANAHEIM, Calif. (Oct. 27, 2017) – The Anaheim Police Department (APD) has been awarded a $25,000 grant to implement the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Minor Decoy, Shoulder Tap Programs and conduct Informed Merchants Preventing Alcohol-Related Crime Tendencies (IMPACT) Inspections.

The 11-month program will supplement the City’s ongoing commitment to reduce underage drinking, DUI and associated driving injuries and fatalities. It further aims to reduce youth access to alcoholic beverages through the education of licensees, enforcement and intervention. APD will use the funding to enhance and supplement enforcement and public awareness efforts to prevent alcohol related deaths and injuries through prevention and education.

“This award will serve as an integral component in our multi-pronged approach in preventing underage drinking, specifically those in which a driver is DUI,” said Acting Chief Julian Harvey.

Activities that the grant will fund include:

  • Raising public awareness that selling, serving and/or furnishing alcoholic beverages to individuals under twenty-one years old is a criminal violation that will be prosecuted by local city and district attorneys.
  • Conducting Minor Decoy Operations at “On-Sale” and “Off-Sale” licensed locations.
  • Conducting Shoulder Tap Operations to apprehend adults that are unaffiliated with the licensed businesses and who are purchasing alcohol for minors outside of the stores.
  • Conducting IMPACT Inspections at “On-Sale” and “Off-Sale” licensed locations.

This project is part of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control's Minor Decoy/Shoulder Tap Grant Project, funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
