The purpose of this guide is to consolidate the experience that campus and community law enforcement agencies have gained in conducting party patrols across jurisdictions and share that information with agencies looking for more effective tools to help manage party-related problems. This guide covers six basic components that together will maximize the chances of having success with party patrols. These 6 components include: effective legal tools, messaging and visibility, party prevention and education, early intervention, collaborative partnerships, and enforcement strategies.
