In collaboration with the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety and the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, Project Extra Mile is coordinating two one-day Law Enforcement Trainings (in either Omaha or Grand Island) focusing on underage drinking enforcement. The focus of the training will be enforcement of underage drinking laws through the use of controlled party dispersal and will include an experiential training component. Law enforcement professionals, prosecutors, and community advocates are encouraged to attend. The registration fee for this training is waived, funding for this training is provided by the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
More details on the Law Enforcement Training can be found in this brochure. Clicking on the graphic image (at right) will also take you to the brochure.
Our trainers will be joining us from the Pacific Institute for Research Evaluation. R.J. Elrick, a trainer with PIRE, will provide attendees with information on controlled party dispersal. R.J. served as the director of the Vermont Police Academy prior to his current position, and he has conducted a number of trainings of Nebraska officers and agencies. Mary Gordon, program director with PIRE, will connect the work by law enforcement to the larger community effort to prevent underage drinking
