  • Traffic Safety Unit

    Sergeant Chris Brandt

    Special Operations / TSU

  • Traffic Safety Unit

    What happens when a person is lawfully stopped after leaving your establishment by an officer and is arrested for DUI and that person claims that he/she consumed all his/her alcohol at your establishment?

  • Traffic Safety Unit

    After the officers DUI Investigation has concluded, the officer completes an Establishment Review Task Force (ERTF) form.

    The officer will follow-up with this ERTF form at your establishment. This is the phase where the officer lets you know, as an owner/manager, what took place and share the comments that were made by the arrested person concerning your establishment, i.e. how much and what they drank.

  • Traffic Safety Unit

    The officer addresses any questions and concerns you have. The officer will offer suggestions on how to correct this issue such as over-serving.

    The officer will notify and forward the ERTF to ABC.

    ABC most likely will conduct a follow up with your establishment.

    The same will happen if it involves a crash and the person claims he/she just left your establishment after consuming alcohol there.

  • Traffic Safety Unit

    How can you as an owner/manager combat this issue?

    Be cognizant on how much a patron or customer is being served.

    Train your staff

    Have weekly meeting with your staff on how the previous week went. Talk about any issues your staff experience and offer solutions.

  • Traffic Safety Unit

    Train your staff to recognize customers who walk in your establishment already impaired or have been drinking.

    Pay attention to the entire table or party in serving alcohol. Is there one not drinking or is everyone at the table drinking. Whose driving or walking away from your establishment?

    Offer a TNC i.e. Cab, Uber, Lyft, Limo or call a designated driver on their behalf.

  • Traffic Safety Unit

    Remember, you are responsible and accountable for those individuals that you serve alcohol too. For example, isnt a ER physician responsible for the patient that they just gave a pain relief shot too and then sent home. What if that patient drove and the physician never ensure a safe ride away or inquired? Its something to think about, when one leaves an establishment after drinking and crashes. Please be safe!!!!

  • Preventing Intoxicated Customers

    You are responsible to ensure no one is allowed to become intoxicated on the licensed premises.

    Ensure that anyone who enters an establishment in an intoxicated condition cannot purchase or consume alcoholic beverages.

    If they come in intoxicated, your staff should react appropriately.
