Compliance Checks

Compliance Checks

Underage alcohol compliance checks conducted by law enforcement agencies can reduce the likelihood of illegal alcohol sales at checked alcohol establishments, and theory suggests that an alcohol establishment that is checked may warn nearby establishments that compliance checks are being conducted in the area. 

Young adults are hired to try and buy liquor. If the establishment refusess to sell to the underage shopper, the shopper leaves the business and the Polivce Liquor Inspector identifies him/herself to the seller and offers congrartulations on passing the compliance check. 

If the underage shoppers are successful in buying alcohol, the eserver or seller is told that he or she may be cahrged with a gross misdemeanor and will be notified by mail when charged criminally.
