Missouri University of Science and Technology is hosting a training session for law enforcement officers Friday, July 10, on ways to deal with drinking behaviors and large parties.

Representatives from the Pacific Institute of Research and Evaluation will train more than 20 police officers from around Missouri on how to deal with hostile crowds, underage drinking, drug possession and other scenarios they may encounter at a large college party. Police will then practice their skills with student volunteers at a mock party.

Missouri S&T and the department of public safety at Lincoln University are co-sponsoring the event. Lincoln, Missouri S&T and 11 other public universities in the state are members of Partners in Prevention. The coalition focuses on lowering rates of underage drinking and binge drinking.
