Samenvatting Fairfax County, Virginia Police were surveyed before attending an Alcohol Safety Action Project (ASAP) police orientation and again six months later. The purpose of the study was twofold. The first goal was to establish whether relationships exist between the personal characteristics of police officers, their knowledge of and attitudes toward alcohol and driving and their involvement in DUI patrol and arrest. The second goal was to determine what, if any, effect an ASAP orientation for police officers would have on their (1) knowledge of alcohol and driving; (2) habits and attitudes toward drinking; (3) attitudes toward drinking and driving; and (4) utilization of alcohol testing equipment. The study provides descriptive material concerning officers' attitudes toward drinking alcoholic beverages, their knowledge about alcohol and their perception of the ASAP program.
