Manteca Police Department Hosts Free Training to Promote Safe Consumption and Service of Alcohol | Business
(Manteca) – California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Agents conducted a free training session for ABC licensed businesses and their employees last week in the city of Manteca.
The Agent works for ABC’s Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drugs (LEAD) program. The LEAD program educates businesses on laws involving the sale and service of alcoholic beverages. Last year, over 18,000 alcohol industry employees in California were trained in this program. The LEAD program began on January 1, 1991 with a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety. Since February 1995, ABC has funded the program. Since 1991, the LEAD Program has trained over 200,000 people.
The curriculum was designed for licensees, managers, and employees. There is no separate management curriculum. The 4 hour training provided the licensee and applicants with practical information on serving alcoholic beverages safely, responsibly, and legally, and preventing illicit drug activity at the licensed establishment.
The Department believes this type of training not only helps businesses better understand their responsibilities, but also provides them with the tools and knowledge they need to promote reasonable consumption and contribute to making communities safer.
Manteca Police Department will host a second LEAD training in March of 2013. ABC licensed businesses and their employees who are interested in attending the upcoming training program can sign up by calling Sgt. Jodie Estarziau at (209)456-8161 or sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
This ABC LEAD training was made possible by funds received from ABC’s Grant Assistance Program.
