Los Angeles Drug And Alcohol Policy Alliance (L.A. DAPA) Press Event: Data Reveals City-Wide Affliction With Alcohol Outlet Density Correlating To Higher Crime

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Los Angeles Drug and Alcohol Policy Alliance (L.A. DAPA) will host a Press Event to reveal a newly developed resource to assess the correlation between alcohol overconcentration and crime. Policy makers for all 15 City Council Districts will now have the means to observe, identify, and act upon hard data to reduce the alcohol-related harm long-endured in their Los Angeles communities. L.A. DAPA is confident this new data resource will help the City Council pass an Alcohol Restricted Use Subdistrict (ARUS) Ordinance.
