Placer agencies receive grant to combat alcohol sales to minors

The Placer County Sheriff's Department has received a grant to help combat underage drinking and alcohol sales to minors during the coming year.

The Auburn, Lincoln, Rocklin and Roseville police departments also will participate in activities funded by the $99,760 grant from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, according to a Sheriff's Department news release.

Throughout the year, the Sheriff's Department plans to target problematic ABC-licensed establishments that sell alcoholic beverages to minors and obviously intoxicated adult patrons. Minor-decoy and "shoulder-tap" operations also will be conducted countywide to minimize minors' access to alcohol, officials said.

Deputies will identify areas and businesses where alcohol use is causing problems. They will inspect operations at those locations and at randomly selected establishments to make sure licensees are operating according to ABC standards.

The Sheriff's Department plans to use the grant to increase awareness and provide training regarding alcohol-related crimes and their effect for school staff members, parents and the community.

Two training sessions will be held for businesses that possess alcohol licenses, providing a review of the rules and regulations governing the serving of alcohol.
