The Statesboro Police Department would like to update the community on some recent alcohol compliance operations that yielded positive results.
The Statesboro Police Department’s Alcohol Beverage Control Officer worked with Georgia Division of Revenue Enforcement Officers this past week to check compliance at local package stores. Twenty-four locations were checked by sending in an underage person to attempt to purchase alcohol. We are excited to report that not one of the twenty-four stores sold to the underage individual.
The Statesboro Police Department truly appreciates the diligent work being done by the clerks at our local stores to ensure that alcohol is not easily obtained by underage persons.
Over the past month, officers with the city and state have also checked for compliance with the underage drinking laws at 19 bars and restaurants. One business sold to an underage person, and 13 citations were issued for Underage Possession (7) and Possession of a Fake ID (6).
Media inquiries for this incident should be directed to:
