More and more research shows that the location and operation of bars, stores, and restaurants that serve and sell alcohol affect the level and type of a host of problems in the community, including violence, impaired driving, neighborhood quality of life, and underage drinking. More and more communities are trying to make a difference by exerting more control over how alcohol outlets are located, licensed, and regulated. The Prevention Research Center has carried out some of the key research in this area. Following are materials that provide more information about alcohol outlet control.
