Bars in Michigan are looking out for their patrons.

A new program called "pre-game" is a a sexual assault prevention training program for taverns. 

The program trains staff to protect their guests from over-intoxication and violence.

It also helps prevent drinks from getting spiked.

"I will always take a drink behind the bar so that way if somebody wants to go into the smoke room or whatever, they can go without having to worry about it," said bartender, Brooklyn Orosco.

It's all an effort to stop sexual assault before it happens.

The training began in Saginaw County in April and business owners are lining up to enroll their employees in the program.
