City of Carlsbad Police Department Awarded Grant from the California Department of Alcoholic and Beverage Control

The City of Carlsbad Police Department has been awarded a $40,520 grant from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) to reduce alcohol-related harm in the community. The grant is one of nearly fifty awarded in California to local law enforcement agencies through ABC’s Alcohol Policing Partnership (APP) program.

These grants support local law enforcement efforts by combining the efforts of local police officers, deputies, and ABC agents. ABC agents have expertise in alcoholic beverage laws and can help communities solve alcohol-related problems.

The APP program was created in 1995 to strengthen partnerships between ABC and local law enforcement agencies. The program is designed to keep alcohol away from minors and prevent harm to the community.

The funds will be used to help prevent alcoholic beverage sales to minors and obviously intoxicated patrons, illegal solicitations of alcohol, and other criminal activities such as the sale and possession of illegal drugs.

The APP Program has distributed more than $40 million to local law enforcement to reduce alcohol-related crime.
