Description & results

Developed in partnership with then, District Attorney of Winchester County, New York (Jeanine Pirro), the program provided licence tampering detection devices to all retail outlets in the county who serve alcohol. Because of its success, OTP has been adopted by other local law enforcement agencies, as technologies allow, and has expanded to counties throughout New York and beyond.
