Buffalo County alcohol retailers fail compliance checksTell North Platte what you think

The Nebraska State Patrol, in conjunction with the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office and the Kearney Police Department, conducted compliance checks Friday at 86 alcohol retail outlets in Buffalo and Sherman counties.

A total of 12 retail outlets in Buffalo County were found to be non-compliant after selling alcohol to minors, Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said.

The outlets checked during the collaborative effort included convenience, liquor and grocery stores as well as restaurants and bars.

The outlets were not immediately named.

Compliance checks are conducted to help communities determine the extent of the problem of alcohol sales as a source of youth access to alcohol. Local law enforcement conducts compliance checks to ensure that businesses are in compliance with the state’s youth alcohol laws.

The Nebraska Office of Highway Safety provided $2,310 in grant funds to assist with the enforcement effort, Collins said.
