Police find one violator in alcohol compliance checks

— Of the 13 outlets visited during recent alcohol compliance checks, only one sold alcohol to a minor, according to a media release from Neighbors Building Neighborhoods.

The Muskogee Police Department and the Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission conducted the checks March 14. All-In Tavern, 2900 N. 32nd St., failed the check, the release states.

“This resulted in an overall alcohol compliance rate of 92 percent,” the release states.  

The visits were to assess that local vendors are complying with state law by not selling alcohol to minors.

The underage youth selected to participate in alcohol compliance checks are youth leaders who have undergone training and sign an agreement to follow the protocol set by law enforcement agencies. These youth are honest about their age and carry valid identification into the establishment.

Neighbors Building Neighborhoods, the regional prevention coordinators for Muskogee, McIntosh and Hughes counties, will offer Responsible Beverage Service & Sales training to any interested alcohol vendors in the county.

Information: Neighbors Building Neighborhoods: (918) 683-4600.
