Alcohol Linking Program


This project focused on the development and evaluation of a program to enhance police enforcement of liquor licensing laws as they relate to licensed premises.Evaluation: Preliminary results suggest a reduction of up to 22% in the number of intoxicated patrons involved in incidents that followed their reported consumption of alcohol on audited premises.Conclusion: The system has been shown to contribute to a reduction of alcohol-related crime and has been adopted in routine practice by NSW police state-wide. It is a good example of how research can be conducted in a way that bridges the gap between policy research and policy practice.
