KANSAS CITY ASAP (ALCOHOL SAFETY ACTION PROJECT). SECTION I. ANALYTIC STUDY 3: AN ANALYSIS OF ASAP PATROL ACTIVITY

The study concerns activities and impacts of the police in Kansas City, Missouri, regarding enforcement of laws pertaining to drinking and driving. Arrests more than doubled as a result of ASAP. A Special Alcohol Safety Patrol (SASP), although it comprised less than 1% of the police department, accounted directly for well over half the increase and, by example, caused the rest of the department's arrests to increase. Patrol experiments aimed at increasing the apprehension of younger or more wealthy drivers were largely unsuccessful, mostly because the otherwise useful practice of 'cooperative arrests' distorted certain data records used in planning and evaluating such experiments.
