Using a Tech-Based Tip Program to Detect and Intervene with Underage Drinking : This webinar describes how one Maine coalition worked with law enforcement and other community stakeholders to establish an anonymous tech-based tip service for underage drinking which they call eTip. This successful program has supported the area communities and law enforcement in detecting and intervening more proactively in underage drinking occurrences- and can be used to identify other youth safety matters, such as suicide and bullying. This tip program not only facilitates law enforcement detection, but can also increase youth and adult perceptions that they will be caught for underage drinking and/or illegal alcohol furnishing.
