Increasing enforcement against adults who host underage drinking parties is proven to have a substantial effect on the number of adult-hosted underage drinking parties.
BHRS provides funding to the Modesto Police Department to conduct Party Patrols during the times of year when underage drinking parties are most prevalent. In conjunction with Party Patrol operations, a community education program has been launched to highlight the penalties of hosting an underage drinking party. The publicity surrounding party patrol operations is expected to affect the attitudes of parents and other adult alcohol providers as they begin to view underage drinking as less acceptable.
