COMPLIANCE CHECKS CONDUCTED TO HELP KEEP ALCOHOL OUT OF THE HAND OF MINORS 

 

Frederick, Maryland – On 05/17/2017 the Frederick Police Department conducted compliance checks of restaurants and retailers selling alcohol products within the City of Frederick.

The Frederick Police Department, with the help of underage volunteers, were able to visit 25 businesses and check for compliance with state laws prohibiting the sale of alcohol products to minors. All volunteers were under the age of 21, and each one possessed a valid and legal identification card or driver’s license, which was to be shown to every server or seller who asked to see their identification.

Of the 25 businesses visited, 25 passed the compliance check yielding a compliance rate of 100%. These 25 businesses and employees were presented and congratulated with a letter by the Frederick Police Department and commended for their efforts.
