The Ninth Annual “Out of Their Hands” Spring Blitz began April 1, 2018 in South Carolina. Strict enforcement coupled with a strong media message occurred throughout April until April 30, 2018. During that time, the South Carolina Alcohol Enforcement Teams and their enforcement and education partners engaged community residents, businesses, and others to deny alcohol access to those youth who are less than 21 years of age. The campaign website is at http://scoutoftheirhands.org and it is a crucial part of the media success with the campaign. The campaign Facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com/SouthCarolinaOutofTheirHands. Additional resources are found at https://www.facebook.com/SCParentsWhoHost. The statewide effort involved all 16 Alcohol Enforcement Teams that cover the 46 counties in South Carolina. SCAET began statewide in 2007 and OOTH is modeled on successful environmental strategies to reduce alcohol access to individuals under 21 years old.
