Party Prevention & Controlled Party Dispersal

Owner: UDETC
Description: This self-paced online course discusses the role of enforcement and community agencies in preventing underage drinking parties and safely dispersing them when they do occur. It describes the problem of underage drinking in general and youth drinking parties in particular. This course recognizes that to be successful, any underage drinking strategy must be supported by law enforcement, the judiciary and the community. Consequently, this course examines not only the mechanics of successful controlled party dispersal operations, but also how controlled party dispersal is part of a larger effort to focus investigations, change community perceptions and promote joint law enforcement and community efforts. This course includes information on conducting controlled party dispersal operations, legal strategies, marketing and media and police – community roles and relationships.

The outcomes of poor planning and the effects of zero tolerance are also reviewed.

Source Investigations
Owner: UDETC
Description: This self-paced online course discusses the issues of underage drinking and the value of conducting source investigations following incidents involving youth and alcohol. Source investigations provide law enforcement agencies and community organizations with critical information that serves as the foundation for identifying and implementing key strategies to further prevent youth access to alcohol. A source investigation is yet another tool in a state’s or community’s alcohol prevention toolbox because it goes the extra mile toward holding adults accountable for their actions. The long and tireless investigative process, which extends from the tragic alcohol-related incident to the final adjudication of an adult provider (both criminal and civil), pays off in the prevention of underage drinking and in the improvement of the health and safety of the community at large.

Applying the Strategic Prevention Framework to Prescription Drug Abuse
Owner: CADCA
Description: This self-paced online course will address prescription (Rx) and over-the-counter (OTC) medicine misuse, abuse and addiction, an epidemic that CADCA’s coalitions are addressing in their communities every day. Although safe when taken as prescribed and often truly life-saving, Rx and OTC medicines also present a major problem—as they are easily accessible and many perceive these drugs to be less harmful than illicit drugs. CADCA has been tracking and addressing this public health threat for more than 10 years.

This prescription drug abuse prevention course applies the strategic prevention and community problem solving framework used by CADCA’s National Coalition Institute specifically to Rx and OTC medicine abuse. This course, consisting of 10 modules, applies the “problem statement” of youth prescription drug abuse to the major competencies of the Strategic Prevention Framework. Users should have a working knowledge of the SPF and have identified Rx abuse/misuse as a problem in order to gain significant knowledge and build basic skills to tackle the problem by taking this course.
