Amherst to Crank Up Underage Drinking Enforcement

AMHERST, Mass (WGGB)– It’s move-in week at UMass Amherst, and police are vowing to take a tough stance against underage drinking.

The Amherst Police Department announced Tuesday it would be increasing enforcement in areas of the town that historically experience a high number of alcohol violations. They promise additional patrols made up of uniformed, plain clothed, and bicycle patrol officers.

The mobilization, which will run from August 30th through September 30th, is funded by the Massachusetts 2012 Underage Alcohol Enforcement Grant Program.
