Sheriff Steps Up Alcohol Control

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — The Calaveras County Sheriff´s Department will be stepping up enforcement efforts to prevent businesses from selling alcohol to minors.

Captain Jim Macedo says the department will be administering a $25,000 grant with Alcohol Beverage Control.

The money will pay to staff programs aimed at preventing minors from obtaining alcohol.

Macedo says department personnel have an incentive for the program´s success because they have responded to accidents where minors have been injured due to the use of alcohol.

Programs will include a decoy operation aimed at businesses and a shoulder tap operation to prevent adults from buying alcohol for minors.
