The Wichita Police Department conducted a Juvenile Underage Drinking Group Education/Enforcement (JUDGE) Special Assignment on Saturday. There were 107 establishments checked with the assistance of the State of Kansas Department of Alcohol and Beverage Control (ABC). Of the 107 establishments that were checked, 13 were cited for selling alcohol to underage individuals.
“Each buyer (decoy) had their real Kansas DL or Kansas Id card with them. The compliance checks went well and most businesses were cooperative with us. ” said Officer Mike Lloyd, the JUDGE Program Coordinator for WPD. Officer Lloyd indicated that with the upcoming high school prom season and graduations that the Wichita Police Department will be very active when it comes to underage alcohol education and enforcement.
The JUDGE program is mini-grant funded by the Kansas Department of Transportation’s “Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws” (EUDL) grant.
