Alcohol Compliance Checks
Alcohol Compliance Checks (ACCs) is a prevention program
designed to reduce the number of retailers who sell alcohol
to youth under the age of 21. When covered by the media,
ACCs also reduce the perceived availability of alcohol and
promote healthy community norms about its sale and consumption.
During an ACC teams of adults, law enforcement officers, and
underage youth visit retail establishments where alcohol is sold (convenience stores, grocery stores, liquor stores, restaurants, and bars). At these establishments the youth attempt to purchase alcohol. Retailers who sell are subject to administrative and criminal penalties.
WMPN schedules ACCs, recruit youth volunteers, and coordinates law enforcement cooperation. WMPN also arranges media coverage of the results.
If you or your minor child would like to serve as an ACC youth volunteer, please see the Volunteer Forms below.
