Building on morning pre-conference, Environmental Prevention 101: The Law Enforcement Edition, this session will discuss the importance of an evidence-based and comprehensive enforcement strategy to address substance misuse on campus and in the surrounding community. The instructors will describe several “best practice” enforcement strategies to include: Compliance Check Investigations, Controlled Party Dispersal, Retail Beverage Service Training, Bar Investigations, Impaired Driving Enforcement, and Special Events Management and Enforcement. The overall goal is for participants to understand the core components of specific strategies and walk away with the knowledge they need to incorporate these strategies into their prevention efforts.
Effective substance misuse prevention efforts on college campuses cannot and should not be the responsibility of a single person or office. Building the prevention capacity of partners across campus departments can help to ensure that prevention efforts are both successful and sustainable. This session will explore the basics of campus substance misuse prevention, environmental prevention strategies, and law enforcement’s role on the prevention team. It will highlight the importance of including environmental prevention strategies as part of a comprehensive prevention approach and the different types of environmental strategies used across the state.
