VICTORVILLE:(VVNG.com)- According to the Department of Health and Human Services, underage drinking is a major health concern in the United States. Alcohol is the most commonly abused drug among minors, causing more than 4300 deaths yearly. Over 10% of the Alcohol purchases are consumed by those 12-20 years of age.
On Wednesday, August 6, 2014 the Victorville City Alcohol Compliance Team (A.C.T.) performed a minor decoy compliance operation in the City of Victorville. A minor decoy attempted to purchase alcohol from several establishments. The businesses were a combination of on sale and off sale licensee’s. As as a result of the operation, employee’s from several off sale and on sale businesses were cited for alcohol sales to a minor.
The A.C.T. team plans to perform several more decoy operations in the future to ensure compliance from the businesses in Victorville. The Victorville Alcohol Compliance Team conducts ABC inspections on alcohol licensed businesses as well as conducting decoy operations. The ACT team also provides Responsible Beverage training.
