Phoenix – The Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) awarded $77,277 to the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) through a federal grant in October 2020. The funding was disbursed through September 2021, and provided personnel overtime, personnel expenses, out-of-state travel, and material resources.
A large portion of the grant funded youth alcohol enforcement and training which targeted underage drinking and fake ID violations at bars, concerts, raves, college campuses, and during DUI task forces throughout the year.
A portion of the grant helped provide fake ID recognition training to law enforcement officers around the State. ID loupes were also issued to aid officers during identification card investigations in the field.
DLLC allocated grant funding in support of these programs:
- $50,000.00 Personnel Services/Overtime
- $20,000.00 Employee Related Expenses
- $5,000.00 Out-of-State Travel
