GPD training combats underage drinking

Posted: Updated:

Officers from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention were on–island today to conduct training in compliance checks in GPD's latest push to tackle underage drinking.

The workshop is one of the results of the enforcing underage drinking laws grant in conjunction with GPD's Juvenile Investigation Division.

The training will help the department's efforts to go out into the community and make sure that local retail outlets are not selling alcohol to individuals under 18.

Sgt. Ron Taitano says, "We'll be going into the establishments with youthful appearing juveniles who go in there and try and purchase alcohol and hopefully the stores will comply with the existing laws and check out ids and when they find out that they're youths, don't sell."

Taitano added that stores found violating the law will be subject to regulatory fines and even criminal action.
