This publication is part of “Strategies for Success: Combating Juvenile DUI,” a four-part series that describes the Juvenile DUI Enforcement Program. The comprehensive program connects eight foundation elements in a single framework. Series documents are as follows:
Part I: Building Programs That Work covers overall strategy and individual steps that the police chief executive or other local justice official can use to lead the implementation of those components that will work best in the local community.
Part II: The Eight Foundation Elements of a Successful DUI Strategy presents the building blocks of the comprehensive Juvenile DUI Enforcement Program. Each block or element combines with others to create a multidisciplinary program uniting the local justice system with social services and the private sector. Included here are short descriptions of innovative programs targeted toward preventing juveniles from driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs (DUI).
Part III: Support Tools for Building Programs That Work contains policies, procedures, press releases, and other information the executive can use to facilitate the process of implementing the eight foundation elements.
Part IV: Leadership Roles for Officials contains three action-oriented papers addressing police, prosecutors, and judges, each written by a current or former official from that discipline. The papers describe specifically why leadership by each official is essential to implementation of the eight foundation elements in the community. The papers also describe approaches that worked well for the authors and their colleagues.
