Perkins County alcohol inspections 100% compliant
During the evening hours of Saturday, Aug. 17, investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol performed alcohol inspections on businesses in Perkins, Keith and Chase Counties.
In total, 15 businesses were inspected. One business in Keith County sold alcohol to a minor for a non-compliance rate of 7 percent. All of the businesses checked the minor’s ID.
The business that sold alcohol to a minor was Ogallala Watering Hole (checked ID, sold to minor).
Businesses that sell alcohol to a minor are referred to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. Clerks who sell alcohol to a minor are cited for procuring alcohol for a minor. The businesses inspected included liquor stores, convenience stores, restaurants, and bars.
NSP and other law enforcement agencies conduct these inspections in an effort to keep alcohol away from youth. This project was supported in whole or part by grant #93.959 under the SAMHSA Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, Region II Human Services, and the Nebraska DHHS Division of Behavioral Health.
