In partnership with the North Inland Community Prevention Program, the City of Escondido will be hosting an ABC LEAD training class on Thursday, May 17th from 11:00am to 3:00pm. The class will be held at Escondido Police/Fire Headquarters located at 1163 N. Centre City Pkwy.
LEAD stands for Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drugs.
The LEAD program provides the alcohol beverage licensee and licensee applicants with practical information on serving alcoholic beverages safely, responsibly, and legally, and preventing illicit drug activity at the licensed establishment.
The program is operated by the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) and is a free, voluntary prevention and education program for retail alcohol beverage licensees, their employees and licensee applicants. Benefits of the training include; reduced risk of liability (including criminal, civil, and administrative), possible reduced insurance premiums, and provides ways to deal with difficult situations.
Advance registration is required. To register, go to the Alcohol Beverage Control’s website at https://www.abc.ca.gov/, click on “LEAD training” and follow the prompts. Please print the materials required for the class from the website and bring them with you.
