Alcohol Operation A Success

During the second week in March, Ripon Police Department Special Investigations Unit (SIU) detectives and Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents conducted shoulder tap operations in various locations within the city.

This was part of a statewide ABC operation where over 100 agencies participated throughout the state. During the operation, underage decoys asked patrons to purchase alcohol for them.

At each one of the Ripon locations that were visited by investigators, alert store employees immediately contacted the underage decoys and advised them to leave the property.

The Ripon Police Department works closely throughout the year with Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents and local businesses.

The department would like to thank ABC, the local businesses that were visited, and local concerned citizens who routinely assist the police department by calling in reports of underage drinking incidents. Citizen cooperation is a valuable component in Ripon's efforts to keep our children safe.
