Fortuna Police Chief Dobberstein announced today that the Fortuna Police Department has been awarded a $24,000.00grant from the California Alcoholic Beverage Control(ABC) to battle alcohol-related crime.

“This is important to the Fortuna Police Department in order to increase protection for youth and to identify problem locations that have contributed to an increase alcohol related crime,” Dobberstein said.

The grant is one of 51 awarded in California to local law enforcement agencies through ABC’s Alcohol Policing Partnership Program

The grants strengthen local law enforcement efforts by combining the efforts of local police officers and ABC agents. ABC agents have expertise in alcoholic beverage laws and can help communities reduce alcohol-related problems.

“The program improves the quality of life in neighborhoods,” said ABC Director Jacob Appelsmith.“We’ve seen a real difference in the communities where the grant program resources have been invested.” 

The Alcohol Policing Partnership Program was created in 1995 to strengthen partnerships between ABC and local law enforcement agencies. The program is designed to put bad operators out of business, keep alcohol away from minors and bring penalties such as fines, suspensions or revocations against businesses that violate the law. 

The funds will be used to reduce the number of alcoholic beverage sales to minors, obviously intoxicated patrons, illegal solicitations of alcohol, and other criminal activities such as the sale and possession of illegal drugs.

The APP Program has distributed over $20 million to local law enforcement to combat alcohol-related crime.

ABC is a Department of the Business, Consumer Servicesand Housing Agency.




    Booze water. That’s your new ghost to chase.

  • OFF TOPIC But Pres Bush was a piece of crap, FOR 2 WHOLE TERMS and the second coming Obama was a bigger piece. Obama, in a different SKIN color, continued with the Bush policy. SO bad now we have the “T” . For some misinformed, the “T” is not a politician That scares the estabiishment. Just like Reagan in the 80’s. Doen’t anybody realize the establsment is destroying our country??

  • To the Stockholm Syndrome masses supporting the ‘repeating history’ “Order Followers.” Time to pay attention. I think we’ve reached a dangerous point.

    “If we want something we’ve never had before, we’re going to have to do something we’ve never done before.”

    The basic, basic truth of our quagmire, is simple -as truth always is. Universal. Constant. Can’t be created or destroyed. The Name you go by is not you. It is gubbernut created. The b/c Trust account is what’s being charged. Not the living. Paper binds with paper. Flesh binds with flesh, not paper to flesh.

    Freedom is to be found only in the sphere in which the Government does not interfere. Liberty is always freedom from the Government. Jefferson

    There’s no such thing as a sovereign in commerce.
    Becoming sovereign is not an event. It’s a lifestyle -a way of being.

    Henry Kissinger had this to say; “Military men are just dumb stupid animals, to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”

    There is no question that there is correlation, coherence and coordination between U.S. Inc., and THE COUNTY OF HUMBOLDT regarding the dim-wit mentality ‘war on drugs’ issue.

    Given the dispute over definitive evidence of foreign SWAT teams and U.S. Inc. BLOCK GRANTS for military preparation, any follow-through could conceivably be considered an act of war and/or terrorism.

    I want to be clear to those who wish to do We the creditors harm … despite everything some have been doing -paying compliance Taxes, paying Taxes not approved by the governed (for a skitzo scheme), and/or trumped-up septic charges, and/or storing rain water, and/or the “residence isn’t permitted,” — we will stop you. Make no mistake about that.

    One reason I do not worry about the future is because I’ve lived long enough to know none of the experts absurd predictions of doom and disaster ever happen. But a better reason is because the future is always determined by what the best of human beings are and do, not politicians, academics, and pseudo-intellectuals.

    It will take lots of effort along many fronts by many people to create the world we want to live in – but only if we are committed to building that world ourselves, with our own two hands, instead of constantly deferring this responsibility to others who have demonstrated they have no intention of doing what they say.
