JANESVILLE—In an effort to restrict chronic drinkers' access to alcohol, Janesville police announced Tuesday they are distributing a "no serve list" of problem patrons to local business.

Police developed the policy after noticing, "a small percentage of people in the community were consuming an inordinate amount of public safety and medical resources," according to a news release.

People on the list have had three alcohol-related incidents in a six-month period, authorities said.

To reduce that "unnecessary burden," Janesville police are asking for businesses to not sell alcohol to the people on their list, police said.

The release does not mention how many people are on the list, or how it will be enforced.
