AN ANALYSIS OF ASAP (ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT) PATROL ACTIVITY. ANALYTIC STUDY 3
The study describes and analyzes the enforcement countermeasure of the Fairfax, VA. ASAP. ASAP patrols, discontinued in 1976, were evaluated. Each year a larger proportion of arrests have been made by regular patrols. Few differences were found to exist between the two patrol types in the time of arrests or in characteristics of those arrested. Working ASAP patrol apparently did not influence officers to make more DWI arrests while on regular patrol. Attendance at an ASAP orientation appeared to be influential in increasing arrests. ASAP patrols were less cost effective than 1975, continuing the trend since 1972. The increased cost per arrest was related to increased manhours per arrest. The characteristics of those arrested have been stable from year to year.
