The NMT ASAP Party Patrol action team has met with the local City, Sheriff, State, Special Investigations Unit and Camps Police, student groups, Juvenile Probation Office, and New Mexico Tech administration to discuss how to coordinate a police-led party patrol on likely “party dates” in the community targeting and breaking up large parties. This raises the perception of risk involved with providing alcohol to minors and attending parties as someone who is underage.
Party Patrol Goals
- To decrease youth social access to alcohol at drinking parties by 3%
- To decrease the % of underage adults (18-20) reporting drinking in past 30 days (NMCS)
- To decrease the % of reporting at least 1 drink in the past 30 days (YRRS)
- To decrease the % of college students reporting access to alcohol at an on or off campus party (SLS)
