This project was supported in whole or part by grant #93.959 under the SAMHSA Center for Substance Abuse Prevention, Region II Human Services, and the Nebraska DHHS Division of Behavioral Health.
In total, 15 businesses were inspected. None of the businesses sold alcohol to a minor for a 100% compliance rate. All of the businesses checked the minor’s ID. The businesses included liquor stores, convenience stores, restaurants, and bars in North Platte, Hershey, and Sutherland.
While conducting the inspections, investigators observed a vehicle with open alcohol containers inside, resulting in an arrest for driving under the influence and another citation for minor in possession.
NSP and other law enforcement agencies conduct alcohol inspections in an effort to keep alcohol out of the hands of youth.
