The Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention (ASAP) is hoping to enlist local businesses to emphasize training for employees who serve alcohol to the public. At a meeting this week, they noted the Evanston City Council recently passed a law requiring all servers of alcohol to undergo training within three months. Community Prevention Specialist for Sheridan County, Thom Gabrukiewicz, , says he feels like he gets enough cooperation with local liquor dealers that an ordinance isn't necessary.
Techniques for Intervention ProceedureS is a course usually taught by a law enforcement officer that helps servers understand laws regarding the sale of alcohol, how to avoid serving minors, and how to keep situations under control before an incident occurs.
Local alcohol dealers also help support the Tipsy Taxi program in hopes of preventing drunk driving.
