SAN LUIS OBISPO — To help increase student safety and reduce alcohol-related accidents, the Cal Poly Police Department, in conjunction with California Alcoholic Beverage Control agents, conducted alcohol enforcement and education programs from September 2021 through June 2022 as part of an annual grant.

The enforcement was on campus as well as residential and business areas directly south of and west of the campus.

The following are the results from this year’s grant:

Ninety-eight alcohol related citations/arrests. These were mainly for possession of fake ID’s, minor (under 21) in possession of alcohol, possession of open containers, drunk in public and furnishing alcohol to a minor.

In addition, Cal Poly Police Department officers also conducted responsible beverage sales education to 12 businesses and trained 124 people. Officers also provided community education to 2,133 students on responsible alcohol consumption, underage drinking and driving under the influence.

The main goal for the Cal Poly Police Department’s Alcohol Enforcement Program is curbing and decreasing medical aid incidents resulting from alcohol poisoning and alcohol-related accidents, as well as providing education and prevention.
