Electronic Ticket (AZ)



To better address the issue of underage drinking by military personnel assigned to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, the Tucson Police Department in 2008 developed an electronic ticketing system for reporting of off-base alcohol-related incidences by airmen to Security Forces. The e-ticket requires Police Officers to check one of three boxes: 1) Active Duty Military NO; 2) Active Duty Military YES; and 3) Not Asked. If “Active Duty Military YES” is checked, the data is electronically collected and a daily report transmitted to Security Forces for base-level follow up. Airmen identified in the report are referred for alcohol screening and assessment through the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Treatment (ADAPT) program. The intent of the reporting system is to increase the safety and well-being of active duty personnel and the civilian population of Tucson and surrounding communities. Sample electronic citations include the following: 1) Active Duty Military NO; 2) Active Duty Military YES; and 3) Violator NOT ASKED if active duty military.

Fake ID 101 Campaign (AZ)

The Fake ID 101 public information campaign grew out of a three-year collaboration among Pima Prevention Partnership (PPP), Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (DM), the Tucson Police Department (TPD), and the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS), to reduce underage drinking among Air Force personnel. The intent of the campaign was to inform patrons of consequences of using fake, falsified, or some other person’s identification cards. The Tucson campaign resulted in a 75% decrease in the number of fake IDs confiscated while the number of patrons through the door increased. The campaign has since expanded to other military and college communities in Arizona.
