Compton Sheriffs and Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) partner to conduct Minor Decoy and Shoulder Tap operations.
The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control has awarded the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department with a $10,000 mini grant to be used by deputies from the Compton Sheriff's Station in preventing underage drinking.
Compton Sheriff's Station personnel will utilize the funds to conduct Minor Decoy and Shoulder Tap operations at undisclosed locations throughout the city of Compton. The Minor Decoy operation has been recognized as an excellent method to attack the problems associated with the unlawful purchase and consumption of alcoholic beverages by underage minors. The Shoulder Tap operation targets adults who furnish alcoholic beverages to underage minors.
The goal of the operations is to reduce underage consumption of, and access to, alcohol and to deter adults from furnishing alcoholic beverages to underage minors. Additionally, both operations are expected to raise public awareness about underage drinking.
This project is part of the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control's Minor Decoy / Shoulder Tap Grant Project, funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Anyone with questions about the program can contact Sergeant Danny Martinez of the Compton Sheriff's Station at (310) 605-6564.
