Grant Helps Rocklin Police Target Under Age Drinking
The Placer County Sheriff's Office is continuing to battle under-age drinking and alcohol sales to minors with a grant from the State of California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
Agencies participating with the Sheriff's Office in the grant for 2013-2014 are Auburn, Lincoln and Rocklin police departments.
Since the grant started in the middle of July, 17 operations - including shoulder taps, decoys and general enforcement operations - have been conducted. A total of 279 individuals were contacted during these operations.
Deputies have visited 25 licensed establishments, cited 47 individuals, and made 14 arrests for DUI, possession of a controlled substance, possession for sale, felony and misdemeanor warrants as well as other crimes.
Grant funds, totaling about $100,000, are also being used to assist the Sheriff's Office in providing awareness and training in alcohol-related crimes and their impact for school staff, parents, students and the community.
In 2014, the Sheriff's Office continues to aggressively target problematic ABC licensed establishments that sell alcoholic beverages to minors and obviously intoxicated adult patrons. Minor-decoy and shoulder-tap operations will also continue countywide to minimize alcohol access to minors.
Deputies and police officers are identifying problematic areas and businesses where alcohol use is causing problems. They will inspect operations at those locations and at randomly selected establishments to ensure licensees are operating within the standards required by ABC.
Two training sessions will also be held for businesses that possess alcohol licenses. These sessions will provide a review of the rules and regulations governing the service of alcohol.
