Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $300,000)

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) plans to create a pilot project to address underage and/or binge drinking on college campuses. This project is to be conducted in two phases. The first phase informs students of the impending operation of underage drinking task forces operating on or near college campuses. The second phase involves the formation of multi-jurisdictional task force of area law enforcement officers working with the Indiana State Excise Police to target underage drinking, binge drinking activities, the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors, the furnishing of these beverages to minors, and the possession of alcoholic beverages by those too young to possess them.
