[ARCHIVED] Alcohol Compliance Checks Conducted to Keep Alcohol Out of the Hands of Minors

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

 

Frederick, Maryland – On 01/09/2018, the Frederick Police Department conducted compliance checks of restaurants and retailers selling alcohol products within the City of Frederick. The purpose of these compliance checks is to promote public health and safety by ensuring that alcohol license holders are working to prevent the sales of alcohol to underage purchasers.

The Frederick Police Department, with the help of underage volunteers, were able to visit 15 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 15 businesses visited, 12 passed the compliance check yielding a compliance rate of 80%. These 12 businesses and employees were presented and congratulated with a letter by the Frederick Police Department and commended for their efforts. The Frederick Police Department would like to thank the following business establishments for their compliance:


DJ Liquors- 1313 W. Patrick St

Golden Mile Tiger Mart- 1380 W. Patrick St

H&R Food Market- 89 S. Market St

Plus Mart II – 1202 E. Patrick St

Rosedale Ice Company- 300 N. East St

Washingtonian Express- 1395 W. Patrick St

Waverly Beer, Wine & Grocery – 45 Waverly Dr

Westridge Liquors- 1045 W. Patrick St

Willow Tree Liquors – 5 Willowdale Dr

Coal Fire Pizza- 7820 Wormans Mill Rd

Ledo Pizza- Festival shopping Center

Zipani Bread Café- 177 Thomas Johnson Dr.


Of the 15 businesses checked, 3 sold alcohol to an underage volunteer. The following establishments were not in compliance with the law and were issued citations for non-compliance and referred to the Frederick County Liquor Board:

Frederick GetGo- 1000 W. Patrick St

Family Meal – 880 E. Patrick St

My Thai – 193 Thomas Johnson Dr


Preventing underage youth access to alcohol is possible and will require the cooperation and collaboration of local law enforcement, public health and government offices, along with the consistent vigilance of local alcohol merchants. Merchant training is available to help in complying with the law.
