FSU Kicks Off Neighborhood Alcohol Watch

By  | 

FSU's police department is launching a new program this fall aimed at curbing alcoholism on and around campus.

It's called the A.I.M. Team, which stands for the Alcohol Intervention and Monitoring Team.

FSU Police LT James Russell says it's sort of neighborhood alcohol watch where concerned students and residents crack down on areas where the reports of under-aged and irresponsible drinking are high.

"We know that as law enforcement, we don't have the answers to everything. The community has so many resources. If a problem arises, bringing those community resources into play can really give us some outside of the box answers to issues that may arise," said Russell.

The first meeting of the A.I.M. Team for this fall will take place on August 3 at FSU's Police Department. The meeting is open to the public.
