"TIPS" training gives owners, managers, and staff of establishments that serve alcohol the knowledge and skills to help them serve alcohol responsibly. Studies have shown that seller-server training results in positive changes such as increased ID checks of customers who appear to be underage and denial of service to obviously intoxicated customers and arrangement of alternate transportation, resulting in a decrease in drunk driving . Immediate benefits to the business include reduced exposure to alcohol liability lawsuits, decreased penalties for alcohol violations, and in many cases lower insurance premiums. In an effort to make this training readily available locally, the Anthony Wayne Community Coalition (AWAKE) sent two law enforcement officers from the ares for a two day Seller-Server Certification training class.
