Underage Alcohol EnforcementPosted Monday August, 11th 2014 4:34PM
The Salem Police Department is participating in the FFY 2014 Underage Alcohol Enforcement Grant Program. The program goal is to reduce young drivers (age 20 or younger) involved in fatal crashes. There are 3 activities that we are employing:
- Reverse Stings/Cops in Shops: This program places undercover police officers in a bar, nightclub, or package store. The undercover police officers stop anyone who: looks to be under the age of 21, attempts to purchase alcohol, or uses/possesses false identification.
- Party Patrols: This allows the police department to have dedicated patrols for breaking up underage parties.
- Surveillance Patrols: In conjunction with the above programs, the police department conducts surveillance in areas of suspected underage drinking.
