In September of 2019, the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office was awarded grant funding from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) – Office of Traffic Safety to conduct multiple enforcement, educational and prevention programs throughout the County of El Dorado.  The goal of this grant is to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors, and reduce alcohol-related crime.  This is done by increasing public safety, combating underage drinking and educating licensees about alcoholic beverage laws.
