ABC out to stop San Diego California DUI & and underage drunk driving & drinking

San Diego County Sheriff’s Department a year ago today benefited from a $75,000 grant from California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to assist in efforts to stop DUI, drunk drunk driving by minors, underage drinking and other alcohol‐related crimes throughout San Diego County.

The grant fiscal year was from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012. During this grant year, there were approximately 235 citations written and 5,945 arrests for alcohol-related crimes Department-wide.

In February of this year, the Sheriff's Department applied for another grant from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. We are proud to announce that the Department was awarded another grant for $100,000.

Starting July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013, the grant will support a wide range of awareness and enforcement activities in communities patrolled by the Sheriff’s Department.

The message is zero tolerance with underage drinking and other alcohol-related crimes at ABC-licensed establishments.
