February Central and Eastern Region liquor compliance checks results

March 7, 2008

WENATCHEE - Central and eastern Washington region liquor enforcement officers in February conducted 30 liquor compliance checks at area businesses; eight sold liquor to a minor.

The Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) regularly conducts compliance checks of area businesses licensed to sell alcohol on and off premises. These businesses include spirits, beer and wine restaurants, large grocery chains, neighborhood markets, taverns, wine bars and sports/entertainment facilities. Compliance checks are proven tools to reduce the sale of alcohol to minors.

Liquor enforcement officers conduct compliance checks assisted by investigative aides. These individuals are from 17 to 20 years old. They must present their true identification if asked by a clerk. However, they may attempt to be evasive if asked their age but not asked for their I.D.

Liquor enforcement officers are empowered to issue Administrative Violation Notices to businesses that fail compliance checks. Fines or temporary license suspensions can be issued depending on the severity of the infraction or the frequency with which a business has been cited. Clerks who sell can also receive a criminal citation.
