The Riverside Police Department has been awarded a grant from the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) in the amount of $58,262.
Through the Alcohol Policing Partnership Program (APP), this funding will be used to help combat alcohol-related crimes including sales to minors, illegal solicitations of alcohol, public intoxication, and to help target problem establishments that have contributed to an increase in crime in the community.
The APP Program was created in 1995 to strengthen partnerships between ABC and local law enforcement agencies. The program is designed to put bad operators out of business, keep alcohol away from minors, and bring penalties such as fines, suspensions, or revocations against businesses that violate the law.
“This grant will help our department improve safety within our neighborhoods,” said Sergeant Chad Collopy of the Vice Unit. “They not only provide us additional resources in our enforcement efforts but will also help us better educate the businesses who sell and serve alcohol and their obligations to keep their patrons responsible when drinking.”
The Riverside Police Department’s Vice Unit is responsible for handling investigations linked to human trafficking, prostitution, and gambling. They also investigate municipal code violations related to alcohol establishments, massage parlors, billiard halls, taxi services, and psychic services.
Residents who have information regarding alleged violations in these business areas are asked to contact the Vice Unit at [email protected].
