Controlled Party Dispersal Database

What is the Controlled Party Dispersal Database?

Despite prevention efforts, underage-drinking parties do occur.

When they do, law enforcement agencies can utilize the controlled

dispersal plan as a method for closing underage alcohol parties.

Controlled dispersal is a systematic operational plan using the

concepts of zero-tolerance and education to safely and efficiently

close the underage-drinking party. A successful controlled dispersal

results in effective zero-tolerance enforcement by placing appropriate

charges against the violator. It also minimizes the potential for

disaster by ensuring that the party attendees are provided a safe

ride home. The proper implementation of the controlled dispersal

plan will benefit your community and its youth by reducing the negative

consequences associated with underage drinking.

Law enforcement agencies that are implementing controlled party

dispersal operations as a proactive strategy to reduce underage

drinking-related problems can use this database to enter data related

to dispersal operations. This database collects information related

to each dispersal operation your agency conducts, such as number

of underage drinkers at the party, number of participants arrested

and the source of alcohol, can be stored into the database. This

database is essentially a reporting form that is easy to use and

easy to retrieve information.
