Alcohol Compliance Check News Release. We are pleased that sixteen of seventeen business complied.

Alcohol sales law compliance checks were conducted on December 30, 2011 on 17 businesses licensed to sell alcoholic beverages. Working with plainclothes and uniformed officers, underage youths entered these businesses and attempted to illegally purchase alcoholic beverages. 16 businesses refused to sell to our underage buyers. The efforts of these responsible business people are commended. Regrettably, one of the businesses checked (Pizza Hut) failed to comply with the law and sold to the underage buyers. This case has been referred to the Sumner County General Sessions Court and the City of White House Beer Board for appropriate action.

Illegal alcohol use by underage persons contributes to crime, car crashes, injuries, and deaths. Law enforcement officers find that alcohol also has a role in many of the more frequent minor crimes and nuisances that degrade the quality of life in our community. Many noise complaints, vandalism, littering, and similar nuisances involve young people who have been drinking. Public health officials report that alcohol use and abuse is also connected with teenage pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and other health problems. We have learned that the community and our youth are safer and healthier when they don’t start using alcohol until after age 21. Please help us keep the next generation safe, keep alcohol out of the hands of our youth.
