Place of Last Drink (POLD)

Partnership for Change is working with agencies to collect data on the place of last drink for DUI and other offenders. We want to help communities and retailers take appropriate action to reduce overservice to young adults. One of the options for using the POLD data is implementing Retail Alcohol Vendor Education & Enforcement (RAVE), which involves a team visiting retailers identified as the place of last drink to RAVEprovide education, recommendations, and resources for responsible serving practices.

Partnership for Change, along with local law enforcement partners, launched POLD in February 2014. While Partnership for Change serves northwest Hennepin County, the POLD online data system is available to be used by any law enforcement department in Minnesota. Contact us for more information or visit POLD website.
