Raynham Police to Conduct Alcohol Compliance Checks of Local Establishments
RAYNHAM — Chief James Donovan reports that the Raynham Police Department will be conducting liquor law enforcement operations over the next several weeks.
During that time, Raynham Police will be carrying out compliance stings at restaurants and businesses throughout town that have liquor licenses.
The purpose of the compliance checks is to prevent people under age 21 from obtaining alcohol and to ensure that liquor license holders, their employees and those over 21 years of age, are not providing alcohol to minors.
“Preventing underage consumption of alcohol is a community-wide responsibility,” Chief Donovan said. “These compliance checks are meant to guarantee that licensees are living up to that responsibility, and we hope that by reducing underage access to alcohol that the community will enjoy a safer holiday season.”
The Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission requires that local authorities notify the public that they intend to conduct compliance checks prior to doing so.
