The culture of young women's drinking: Implications for developing effective policing strategies (2009 - 2010)


The study focused on factors leading up to excessive female intoxication as well as alternatives to the management of incapacitated but non-violent young women.

The project consisted of two stages: a review of extant literature on policing strategies; and interviews with police officers, which were followed by data collection consisting of observations of and interviews with young women who consume alcohol.

The results were discussed and the report contained a number of recommendations for policy and police intervention practice.
