2019 Law Enforcement Training Registration

Controlled Underage Party Dispersal

In partnership with the Nebraska Department of Transportation - Highway Safety Office, Project Extra Mile and the Monument Prevention Coalition are coordinating two Law Enforcement Trainings, which will be held in both the Omaha area and in Scottsbluff. The trainings will focus on preventing and reducing alcohol-related harms through Controlled Underage Party Dispersal.  Law enforcement representatives, prosecutors and community coalition members are encouraged to attend. 

The registration deadline is February 22, 2019.

Goal of this Program

The basic premise of Controlled Party Dispersal is to view underage drinking
parties as crime scenes and approach the incident as if it were a crime in progress. The
goal is to target the adult enabler, process the offenders and the scene to build a
prosecutable case. The processing of an underage drinking party is a standard and
systematic investigation designed to elicit all of the information necessary for a
prosecutable case. Support for controlled party dispersal operations ultimately lies with
your community. The challenge is to identify where the support is and work within the
community to maximize their support. This presentation is designed around best
practices to ensure public safety and officer safety by containing the underage drinking
party and dispersing the participants in an organized and efficient manner.
