Organisation conducting the research
This research project was commissioned by the Health Promotion Agency (HPA) and has three overall objectives:
1. To investigate the impacts of alcohol outlet density on police activity at the local (Census Area Unit) level across New Zealand;
2. To evaluate how these impacts have changed between the period before passing of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 (SSAA) on 18 December 2012, and after; and
3. To evaluate the direct and mediating effects of local alcohol policies (LAPs) on the relationships between alcohol outlet density and police activity.
