How Coalitions can Coordinate with Law Enforcement to create effective Media Messages to help reduce impaired driving


Good Morning,

We look forward to your joining us for our April 20th webinar, “Keeping it Simple: How Coalitions Can Coordinate with Law Enforcement Agencies to Create Effective Media Messages to Help Reduce Impaired Driving” at 1:00pm-2:30pm EDT.

Our Discussion will be led by Dr. Robert Saltz, Senior Scientist at the Prevention Research Center and moderated by Sharon O’Hara, CADCA’s Topical Expert and Consultant

Description of Webinar: The purpose of this webinar is to provide direction and support in developing media messages designed to raise the visibility of enforcement operations to reduce impaired driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), high visibility enforcement (HVE) is a universal strategy that combines law enforcement efforts with visibility elements and a publicity strategy to educate the public and promote compliance with the law. The goal of HVE is to make the motoring public aware of impaired driving enforcement efforts and create deterrence. When the perceived risk of getting caught by law enforcement goes up, the likelihood that people will engage in unsafe driving behaviors goes down.


Learning Goals:

In this session, participants will:

  • Understand the main purpose of creating enforcement “visibility;”
  • Identify effective and ineffective messages;
  • Recognize the best messages and media for reaching specific primary audiences;
  • Learn how prevention organizations and coalitions can create visibility in coordination with enforcement operations of local and state police agencies;
  • Distinguish between paid, earned, and social media types.


Intended Audience: Coalitions, Prevention Organizations, Law Enforcement Agencies.


Registration Link: Please register for the webinar with the following link

Presenter: Dr. Robert Saltz, Senior Scientist at the Prevention Research Center, a unit of Pacific Institute for Research & Evaluation in Oakland, California.
