Advisory

Operation Pop Top

"In an effort to combat the illegal sale of alcohol and tobacco to minors, Polk County Sheriff’s Office School Resource deputies, along with the help of PCSO explorers, have checked 51 businesses in two days,” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “I commend the businesses and conscientious store clerks at 47 of those locations for complying with the law. For those who do not comply, make no mistake, we will arrest you for selling alcohol and tobacco to a minor.”

Polk County Sheriff’s Office, School Resource deputies, along with the assistance of a PCSO Explorer, (Explorers are high school student volunteers), routinely conduct “Operation Pop-Top” in an effort to combat the illegal sale of alcohol and tobacco to minors.
