Place of Last Drink

Helping retailers put a cork in over-service.

Learn More

POLD seeks to identify the location where a person last consumed alcohol when they are involved in an alcohol-related incident (DUI, assaults, and other offenses).

We hope that providing information on problem trends will help retailers be able to improve serving practices and eventually reduce alcohol-related incidents in the community.

For Minnesota agencies, it’s free/no cost to join or collect data.

Information collected by the investigating officer is entered into a database (takes <1 minute) and allows departments to concentrate education and enforcement efforts towards areas of concern.

Number of injuries in alcohol-related crashes

Number of motorists arrested for DWIs


Percentage of DWI offenders age 20–29


Percentage of traffic fatalities involving a drunk driver
