Alcohol Compliance checks were conducted in Trenton on Saturday. Police Chief Rex Ross says the underage person sent into the businesses was unable to purchase alcohol at any of the locations.
The Trenton Police Department worked with the Midland Empire Alcohol Task Force, who provides the underage person, funds to purchase, and pays for all Police Officer overtime to work the investigations. The underage person attempted to buy alcoholic beverages from twelve retail establishments and bars in the community of Trenton.
The compliance checks are conducted to eliminate mistakes by employees and identify anyone selling alcoholic beverages to minors. Authorities will continue to follow up with additional training opportunities for the businesses and employees on legal requirements and compliance.
