The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) conducted two nights of compliance checks at retail alcohol outlets in Dodge and Washington Counties.

Compliance checks were conducted in both counties on Thursday, April 24 and Saturday, May 3. Of the 78 retail outlets checked, 88-percent were found to be in compliance. Nine businesses in Dodge County and one business in Washington County were found to be non-compliant after selling alcohol to a minor. The retail outlets checked during the effort included convenience, liquor and grocery stores, as well as restaurants and bars.

Law enforcement performs compliance checks to ensure businesses are complying with the state’s alcohol laws to decrease youth access to alcohol.

Compliance checks in Dodge and Washington Counties were conducted thanks in part to a $4,720 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).
