Burlington Police to Conduct Alcohol Compliance Checks of Local Establishments

Leave a comment

BURLINGTON — Chief Michael Kent announces that the Burlington Police Department will be continuing to conduct alcohol compliance checks at local businesses throughout the remainder of the year.

“The purpose of these compliance checks is to educate license holders about the importance of complying with local and state laws pertaining to the sale of alcohol, and to remain vigilant in ensuring that no alcoholic beverages are sold to underage persons,” Chief Kent said. “We hope to find all licensees to be in compliance.”

Lawful alcohol compliance checks are vital in ensuring that establishments obey the laws pertaining to the sale of alcohol, especially with regard to underage drinking. Alcohol consumption by minors has a profound effect on the community and is related to motor vehicle crashes, crime, poor performance in school, and a number of other behaviors that could have an adverse impact on the quality of life in town.

Burlington Police intend to conduct compliance checks over the next several months and will continue to do so throughout the year to ensure the safety of youth in the community and that licensed establishments are in compliance with the law.

The Burlington Police Department would like to thank the community for their continued efforts and support.

Any questions pertaining to this information may be directed to Detective Sergeant Timothy McDonough at tmcdonough@bpd.org or 781-272-1212 ext. 4943.
