First Phase of Underage Drinking Project Complete
During the fall of 2011, the Lincoln Police Department's Northwest Team has been conducting a project intended to reduce underage drinking and alcohol related offenses. The first phase of the project was completed in early September. An additional phase of the project will be conducted during the month of October. Officers will patrol neighborhoods and utilize a variety of tactics to focus attention on parties involving alcohol consumption in which students less than twenty one years of age are in attendance. Funding for this second phase of the project has been provided by the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
