Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $356,400)
The goal of the Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) Program is to support and enhance State efforts, in cooperation with local jurisdictions, to enforce laws prohibiting the sale of alcoholic beverages, or the consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors. For the purpose of the program, minors are defined as individuals under 21 years of age.
The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) will partner with middle and high schools, as well as colleges and universities across the State to implement evidence-based programming designed to combat and prevent underage drinking. In addition, ICJI will develop new and innovative media campaigns targeted at young people, their parents and the general public.
ICJI will continue its partnership with the Indiana Excise Police as they conduct Alcohol Compliance Checks at retailers across the State.
