Under Age Drinking Initiative - Washington County

The New York State Police conducted an underage drinking initiative in southern Washington County on February 28, 2018. The initiative consists of testing retail sellers of alcoholic beverages, by having underaged undercover operatives, under direct State Police supervision attempt to purchase alcohol. This is conducted to ensure compliance with the NYS Penal Law and ABC Law restrictions on selling alcohol to minors. The investigation in southern Washington County involved  19 locations tested for sale to minors and all were found to be in compliance.
