From the Nebraska State Patrol:
The Nebraska State Patrol in conjunction with the Hastings Police Department and the Area Substance and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Coalition, conducted compliance checks at 60 alcohol retail outlets.
During the checks conducted Saturday, March 31, four businesses in Adams County were found to be non-compliant after selling alcohol to minors.
The retail outlets checked during the collaborative effort included convenience, liquor, and grocery stores as well as restaurants and bars.
Compliance checks are conducted to help communities determine the extent of the problem of alcohol sales as a source of youth access to alcohol.
Local law enforcement conducts compliance checks to ensure that businesses are in compliance with the state’s youth alcohol laws.
The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety provided $1,980 in grant funds to assist with the enforcement effort.
