Abstract

This paper reports on telephone surveys of bar and restaurant managers in Cumberland and Perry Counties (Pennsylvania) regarding their practices around the promotion and sale of alcoholic beverages. Survey questions focused on alcohol server training of employees, procedures for identifying intoxicated or underage patrons, refusal of services to intoxicated patrons, and whether the establishment sponsors promotions that encourage risky drinking. These surveys, conducted by Dickinson College students in an Advanced Seminar in Community Psychology, are part of the Cumberland Perry Drug and Alcohol Commission's 2012 local needs assessment. This information will be used to develop interventions to decrease risky drinking in these communities.
