For the first through third quarter there have been 24, 19, and 16 offenses reported to the Fort Huachuca ASAP respectively. This decline, over the first nine months of the fiscal year, is due to a collection of factors working together. It is the culmination of the service providers and the community members working to deglamorize alcohol abuse. ASAP officials here want to call on the community, and the agencies that support it, to keep up the good work. A decline in alcohol abuse will impact several other high risk behaviors.
