Joe Cadillic is an absolute treasure as a source of news on surveillance. In a recent post on his own site, he writes:
A non-profit association of law-enforcement personnel is being used to track where people drink and much more.
Iowa is preparing to use the National Liquor Law Enforcement Association’s (NLLEA) “Place of Last Drink” or POLD to collect data on businesses and drivers.“Officials with the Iowa agency that approves liquor licenses are pairing up with a national organization to track where intoxicated drivers were last served or provided alcoholic beverages.”
Participating courts send police reports, receipts and interviews about a person’s final drink to the NLLEA’s national DUI surveillance program.
