Purpose of the Report


prior AATC report was submitted to the Business and Labor Interim Committee on
October 17, 2012; however, this is the First Annual AATC Report being submitted to
the Governor and Legislature. This report was prepared in accordance with 2012
Legislative Session House Bill 354 Utah State Code 53-1-119 (7):

(a) The committee shall begin to collect the information described in Subsection (6)
by January 1, 2013. For fiscal year 2012-13, the committee is required only to
report the information collected between January 1, 2013 and June 30, 2013.
(b) Beginning December 31, 2013, the committee shall report the information
collection under Subsection (6) annually to the governor and Legislature by no
later than the December 31 immediately following the fiscal year for which the
information is collected.


he Alcohol Abuse
Tracking Committee
(AATC) was created as
a result of the 2012 Legislative
Session House Bill 354
Alcohol Beverage
Amendments. The Committee
is made up of several
Divisions, Agencies,
Department, Committees,
Organizations, and individuals
throughout Utah. The
committee’s responsibilities
are to determine if data is
being collected and if not how
it can be collected in the
following areas:

53-1-119(6)
(a) the number of individuals statewide who are convicted of, plead guilty to,
plead no contest to, plead guilty in a similar manner to, or resolve by
diversion or its equivalent to a violation related to underage drinking of
alcohol;

(b) the number of individuals statewide who are convicted of, plead guilty to,
plead no contest to, plead guilty in a similar manner to, or resolve by
diversion or its equivalent to a violation related to driving under the
influence of alcohol;
(c) the number of violations statewide of Title 32B, Alcoholic Beverage
Control Act, related to over-serving or over-consumption of an alcohol
product;
(d) the cost of social services provided by the state related to abuse of alcohol,
including services provided by the Division of Child and Family Services
within the Department of Human Services;
(e) where the alcoholic products are obtained that results in the violations or

(f) Any information the committee determines can be collected and relates to
the abuse of alcoholic products.


he Alcohol Abuse Tracking Committee (AATC) began meeting in May 2012 with
subsequent meetings being held thereafter. Communication continues among
committee members and agencies to identify alcohol abuse problems within the State
of Utah. A variety of resources have been used to gather alcohol related information
including SEOW (Statewide Epidemiological Outcome Workgroup) report, BRFSS
(Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System), SHARP (Student Health and Risk Prevention)
survey, Epi Profile (substance and epidemiological profile), EASY (Eliminating Alcohol
Sales to Youth) report, CCJJ (Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice) report, AOC
(Administrative Office of the Courts) report, DABC (Department of Alcoholic Beverage
Control) report, DOC (Department of Corrections) report, DTS (Department of Technology
Services) mapping, DWS (Department of Workforce Services) CAGE report, SBI (State
Bureau of Investigation) report, and various websites. The compiled information has been
gleaned from January 2013 through June 2013 and is presented in this AATC First Annual
Report.



Surveys and Reports

Statewide Epidemiological Outcome Workgroup (SEOW)

he SEOW report is an estimate of costs of alcohol abuse in the State of Utah. This
report is not available at this time as information will continue to be collected through
December 31, 2013. An amended AATC Report will be submitted once this
information is received.

Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)

his is a telephone survey conducted by the Utah Department of Health to collect
information on a variety of health behaviors including alcohol use. This survey
includes questions that identify patterns of high risk alcohol consumption, “chronic
drinking” and “binge drinking”.


tah BRFSS included two additional alcohol consumption questions in 2013.
Respondents who report drinking alcohol in the past 30 days are asked where they
did most of their drinking on the last occasion and where they bought the alcohol
they consumed on the last occasion. People who report having binged will be asked the
questions regarding the last time they binged (4 or more drinks for women, 5 or more drinks
for men). By asking these questions of anyone who consumed alcohol, not just binge
drinkers, we will be able to analyze whether there are differences in behavior between those
who do and those who do not binge drink. So far in 2013, the Utah BRFSS Program has
collected approximately 4,000 completed surveys. Of these, an estimated 1,000 respondents
have answered these additional questions. We estimate that we will have approximately
3,600 responses to these questions by the end of the year. The results to these two questions
are shown below along with a comprehensive summary of alcohol indicators.

Utah State Substance and Abuse Epidemiological Profile
(Epi Profile)

he Department of Health summarizes specific data related to substance use and the
consequences. This is called the Epidemiological Profile and includes data such as,
but not limited to, adult and youth alcohol consumption, suicide rates, prescription
drug overdoses (fatal and hospitalizations) and arrest rates.


pi Profile data is collected from multiple datasets including the Drug Abuse Warning
Network (DAWN), FBI, Law Enforcement, Utah Department of Health (BRFSS,
Vital Statistics from IBIS), and National Survey on Drug Use in Households
(NSDUH) along with our Student Health and Risk Prevention (SHARP Survey. The
following information is the most current data available.

Eliminating Alcohol Sales to Youth (EASY)

he EASY program conducted 628 off-premise underage buyer operations in nine
counties throughout Utah from January 2013 through June 2013. These covert
operations are for off-premise sale of alcohol (grocery or convenience store) to youth.
The following data concludes that Utah is 91.08% compliant (did not sale to a minor). Costs
of reimbursements to law enforcement agencies totaled $16,091.69.

Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice (CCJJ)
Cost/Benefit

he 2013 Legislature
appropriated $5,118,400
to be distributed from
the Alcoholic Beverage
Enforcement and Treatment
Restricted Fund (State Beer
Tax) to municipalities and
counties statewide on a formula
basis.
1
These funds are used to
support DUI enforcement as
well as other alcohol-related
activities. Total amount spent
was in FY 2013 was
$4,239,508.93 in the following
categories:

Alcohol-related prevention/education;

Treatment of offenders with alcohol problems;

Alcohol-related law enforcement, including DUI;

Prosecution of alcohol-related cases; and

Confinement of alcohol law offenders.


CJJ prepared the Eleventh Annual Driving Under the Influence Report to the Utah
Legislature in accordance with §41-6a-511 of the Utah Code. The statute requires the
Utah Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice to prepare an annual report of
DUI related data, including the following:

Data collected by the state courts to allow sentencing and enhancement decisions
to be made in accordance with violations involving driving under the influence of
alcohol and/or other drugs;

In accordance with §32B-2-404 (UCA), the State Tax Commission distributes beer tax funds to municipalities
and counties in December of each year based upon the following formula: percentage of state population
residing in each municipality and county (25%); each municipality’s and county’s percentage of the statewide
convictions for all alcohol-related offenses (30%); the percentage of the following in the state that are located
each municipality and county; state stores, package agencies, retail licensees, and off-premise beer retailers
(20%); and for confinement and treatment purposes (for persons arrested for or convicted of offenses in which
alcohol is a contributing factor) on the basis of the percentage of the state population located in each county
(25% to counties only).

DUI recidivism and to evaluate the DUI related processes of:

! Law enforcement;
! Adjudication;
! Sanctions;
! Driver license control, and
! Alcohol education, assessment, and treatment.


he Utah Department of Public Safety, through its Driver License Division and
Highway Safety Office, collects information on all DUI arrests. In FY 2013, law
enforcement officers made 12,227 DUI arrests. This was 804 fewer than in FY 2012,
representing a decrease of over six percent, and a decrease of over 11 percent since FY 2011.


uring FY 2013,
nearly 81 percent
of the arrests were
for per se violations where
the driver had a .08 or
greater blood/breath
alcohol concentration, or
was impaired by alcohol,
drugs, or a combination of
the two to the extent it was
unsafe to operate a vehicle.
Under Utah law, drivers are
considered to have given
consent to tests of breath,
blood, urine, or oral fluids
to determine whether they
are driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Almost 12 percent of arrests were
for refusal to submit to a chemical test. It is also illegal to drive with any measurable
controlled substance metabolite in one’s body, which accounted for almost two percent of
arrests. Violations of the Not a Drop statute, by persons under the age of 21 who drove with
any measurable alcohol concentration in their body, accounted for 4.5 percent of the arrests,
a decrease of nearly eight percent from the previous year and 22.5 percent since FY 2011.
The fewest arrests were commercial drivers exceeding the .04 limit, which represented only
0.1 percent of the total.

he arrests made in FY 2013 included those that occurred as a result of specialized DUI
overtime enforcement events such as enforcement blitzes, saturation patrols, and DUI
checkpoints. A portion of the DUI impound fees collected was specifically designated
to fund the overtime shifts. During FY 2013, 104 law enforcement agencies throughout the
state participated in overtime events, including local police agencies, sheriffs’ offices, the
Utah Highway Patrol, Motor Vehicle Enforcement, Utah Parks and Recreation, Utah Wildlife
Resources, and three university police departments.

! Interlock restricted driver (IRD) conviction.

! When a driver is arrested for DUI, the license is taken and a 30-day
temporary license is issued. Drivers may request a license hearing within
10 days, and the Driver License Division must schedule the hearing within
the 30-day period of the temporary license.

! The Driver License Division conducted 5,206 hearings in FY 2013 to
determine if there was sufficient information to warrant the suspension or
revocation of the individual’s driver license.

As shown in the table,
there were 5,206
requested alcohol
hearings held in FY
2013. The Division is
unable to take any action
against a driver if the
arresting officer does not
appear at the hearing. To
improve appearance
rates, the Division offers
a telephonic option
whereby officers or
offenders can phone in
for the hearing.

Screening, Assessment, Education and Treatment

! Screening and Assessment: As part of any sentence for a DUI offense,
Utah law requires offenders to participate in a screening and, if indicated
by the screening, an assessment. A screening involves gathering
information that is used to
determine if an individual
has a problem with alcohol
and/or other drug abuse,
and if so, whether an in-
depth clinical assessment
is appropriate. An
assessment is a collection
of detailed information concerning the individual’s alcohol and/or other
drug abuse, emotional and physical health, social roles, and other relevant
areas of the individual’s life. The assessment is used to determine the need
for substance use disorder treatment
2
. The following table shows the
orders for substance use disorder screening and assessment by the District
and Justice Courts in FY 2013, for those cases where the values were
known.


! Education: The purpose of DUI education is to “address any problems or
risk factors that appear to be related to use of alcohol and other drugs and
attempt to help the individual recognize the harmful consequences of
inappropriate use, with special emphasis placed on the dangers of drinking
and driving.”
3
Utah DUI offenders sentenced to an educational series
attend the PRIME For Life® (PFL) program developed by the Prevention
Research Institute (PRI). “PRIME For Life® is a motivational intervention
that provides education and strategies for individuals who have
experienced problems due to high-risk alcohol or drug use. PFL is an
interactive experience designed to motivate and guide individuals toward
making low-risk choices and adopting more accurate beliefs about
personal risk that will support those low-risk choices. The program
provides research-based, low-risk guidelines and assists participants in
making choices to best protect what they value.”

Eighty-one percent of participants who completed the PRIME For Life!
(PFL) program, Utah’s court-ordered educational series for DUI offenders,
reported they were highly motivated to reduce to or maintain their drinking at
low-risk levels.

Most participants in PRIME for Life (during 2011) reported they agreed
or strongly agreed PFL helped them.

! Treatment: For a first and second DUI offense, the court may order
treatment; for a third or subsequent offense within 10 years, the court must
order substance use disorder treatment. “Treatment involves the application
of planned procedures to identify and change patterns of behavior that are
maladaptive, destructive, and/or injurious to health; or to restore appropriate
levels of physical, psychological and/or social functioning. DUI offenders
assessed as
meeting the
diagnostic criteria
for a substance use
disorder should
participate in a
treatment program
in addition to, or in
lieu of, the
educational
course.”12
Treatment should
address both
alcohol and other
drug problems. The
level of treatment
needed (e.g., day treatment, outpatient, intensive outpatient, residential) is
determined by the assessment on the basis of the severity of the substance use
disorder. The table below shows the orders for substance use disorder
treatment by the Justice and District Courts in FY 2013, for those cases where
the values were known.


Utah’s Impaired Driving Media Campaign

! The Utah Department of Public Safety Highway
Safety Office’s statewide media, high-visibility
enforcement, and community outreach campaign
focuses on changing Utah citizens’ current
perceptions and behaviors regarding driving under
the influence of alcohol. This focus supports the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s “Drive Sober or Get
Pulled Over” campaign goal to provide resources to communities to create
deterrence through public and private partnerships.

maintain a disciplinary proceeding on the basis of a violation alleged in a report, the
department shall notify the licensee by no later than eight business days of the day on which
the department receives the report. The DABC initiates disciplinary proceeding by issuance

Department of Technology Services (DTS)

TS has the capability to pull address information for alcohol related offences that
have been extracted from the electronic citation submission repository (currently
available from approximately 50% of law enforcement agencies in Utah). This
information is sent to the AGRC (Automated Geographic Reference Center) for geo-coding.
AGRC can then extract summary information for mapping. Note: When the information is
shown on the map, no personal information will be seen.

Department of Workforce Services (DWS)

WS has approximately 20,000 individuals per year in case management. An average
of 1,491 clients per year (from 2000 to 2012) answered yes to at least one CAGE
question. There was a significant drop in 2013 to 240 clients. This is probably due
to a policy chance that no longer requires every case managed customer to answer the CAGE
questions.

CAGE is a 4-item, relatively non-confrontational questionnaire for detection of alcoholism.
The 4 questions are:

1. Have you felt the need to Cut down on your drinking?
2. Do you feel Annoyed by people complaining about your drinking?
3. Do you ever feel Guilty about your drinking?
4. Do you ever drink an Eye-opener in the morning to relieve shakes?

The first letters in the bold statements make up the CAGE acronym by which the assessment
is known.

Department of Public Safety/State Bureau of Investigation
(SBI)

BI agents make up an Alcohol Enforcement Team (AET) and focus on alcohol
enforcement in the State of Utah. SBI Agents focus primarily on public safety with an
emphasis on service to intoxicated persons, service of alcohol to minors or
consumption of alcohol by minors, and of DUI.


gents conduct statewide compliance operations and investigations at random and/or
as a result of a tip, complaint or anonymous report of violation(s). If violation(s) are
found, the information is gathered and referred to DABC for administrative action
and/or local prosecution in the case of a criminal violation. (See DABC Compliance Report
for a summary of SBI activity.)


ne of the areas of focus is Covert Underage Buyer (CUB) operations. Agents visited
1,034 establishments statewide during the period of January 2013 through June 2013.
This included restaurants, clubs/bars, and retail stores. 165 sales were made to
CUB’s. This averages approximately 16% underage buyer sales statewide.














he SBI Alcohol Enforcement Team conducts youth alcohol operations in support of
local law enforcement (i.e. Raves, Concerts, Music Festivals, etc.). The majority of
costs for youth alcohol operations come from grant funding through the Utah
Highway Safety Office and averages approximately one-two operations per month. During
2013, SBI participated in 28 youth alcohol operations. A total of 400 citations were issued
for alcohol/drug violations.


he following table represents violation types by quantity. This report concludes that
sale to a minor is the most frequent violation with 148 violations during this period of
January through June 2013.
