ANAHEIM, Calif. (October 6, 2020) – On September 23, 2020, Investigators with the Anaheim Police Department’s Vice Unit conducted a Minor Decoy Operation to check on compliance at off-sale alcohol retail establishments within the City of Anaheim. The Minor Decoy Program uses supervised individuals under the age of 20, who attempt to purchase alcohol at licensed premises. Any sale of alcohol to a minor decoy may result in criminal and administrative sanctions for the employee and the licensee.

The team visited eight alcohol retail establishments within the City of Anaheim. Six of the establishments did a commendable job and used proper protocol as the minor decoy was denied alcohol at each location. Violations were obtained at two locations and the employee was issued a citation for selling alcohol to a minor.

The Minor Decoy Program has proven to be an effective tool in promoting responsible practices in the sales of alcoholic beverages by licensees, reducing substance abuse and enhancing community welfare by limiting underage access to alcohol.

This project is part of the Department of Alcohol Beverage Control’s Alcohol Policing Partnership Program.
