Alcohol Enforcement Team works to decrease access to minors

Posted: Updated:

Press Release from the 15th Judicial Circuit Alcohol Enforcement Team:

As we begin another academic school year, The 15th Judicial Circuit Alcohol Enforcement Team (AET) has started conducting Alcohol Compliance Check Operations in Horry County. These operations will continue in Horry County and will also include Georgetown County. These operations, lead by Elizabeth Clark, AET Coordinator with Shoreline Behavioral Health Services, are collaborative efforts of the AET and various law enforcement agencies throughout the 15th judicial circuit (Horry and Georgetown Counties). Citations will be issued to those retailers that sell alcohol to minors. If a purchase is made, the person who sells the alcohol as well as the establishment with the license to sell alcohol will be cited. It is the goal of the AET to achieve a 100% compliance rate which means, no citations written for selling alcohol to minors. The goal of the Alcohol Enforcement Team is to reduce underage access to alcohol. Merchants are reminded that the legal age to purchase, possess or consume alcohol is 21 years old and are asked to be vigilant in checking ID's. All clerks and servers should be verifying ID's and be alert to the signs of a potential purchaser to ensure they aren't purchasing for someone underage.
