Law Enforcement

The Division of Enforcement's mission includes the prevention of underage people acquiring age restricted products such as alcohol and tobacco, and to encourage the responsible sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages by adults thereby reducing the number of alcohol related incidents in our communities and on our highways.

The following training programs are offered to Law Enforcement Agencies:

  • Identifying Fake IDs – Training designed to equip officers with skills and knowledge needed to
    identify Fake IDs. Help provide techniques for spotting fictitious Driver's Licenses, Identification Cards,
    Military IDs, Passports and Green Cards. Identity Theft is a fast growing crime. Identity theft is used by
    illegal immigrants, terrorist and fugitives to gain access into this country and hide. High school and college
    students use fictitious documents to purchase age restricted products. Credit card and check fraud is on
    the rise with the use of stolen and fictitious identification.
  • Provide current trends in fake identification and current technology used to identify fake identification.
  • Controlled Dispersal – In March 1993, a Northern Virginia high school student was driven to her death when an intoxicated friend drove into a tree. Prior to the accident she and her friend attended a keg party at a residence. The parents returned home and closed the party by scattering the youth. In the past, law enforcement responses for handling underage drinking parties were similar. In some cases, officers worsened the situation by using tear-gas or Pepper Spray. The key objective is to dedicate available resources to contain the party participants appropriately and effectively control their release. Enforcement is used as an education tool to properly manage the incident and involve the parents to discourage future participation. Controlled Dispersal training is designed to provide a step-by-step approach for dispersing underage drinking parties safely.

The basic premise is to dedicate appropriate available resources to contain the party participants and effectively control their release. Enforcement is used as an education tool to properly manage the incident, to involve the parents to discourage future participation.
