  1. Reverse Stings/Cops in Shops: This program places undercover police officers in a bar, nightclub, or package store. The undercover police officers stop anyone who: looks to be under the age of 21, attempts to purchase alcohol, or uses/possesses false identification.
  2. Party Patrols: This allows the police department to have dedicated patrols for breaking up underage parties.
  3. Surveillance Patrols: In conjunction with the above programs, the police department conducts surveillance in areas of suspected underage drinking.
