The Regional Prevention Coordinator of Neighbors Building Neighborhoods, in conjunction with the Muskogee Police Department recently conducted alcohol compliance checks in the city on the night of Wednesday, September 23rd.

The visits were to assess that vendors are complying with the law by not selling alcohol to minors. Of the 12 outlets visited, one establishment sold alcohol to an underage minor. This resulted in an overall alcohol compliance rate of 92 percent. The store in violation was York Street Stop & Go, 803 N. York St.

The underage youth who are selected to participate in Alcohol Compliance Checks are youth leaders who have undergone training, and sign an agreement to follow the protocol set by law enforcement agencies.

These youth are honest about their age, and carry their own valid I.D. into the establishment.
