Truckee Police works with businesses on booze laws
June 10, 2015
TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Truckee Police Department recently hosted a meeting with all downtown area businesses that are licensed to sell alcohol.
It was designed to serve as an open forum between TPD and businesses in an effort "to foster collaborative relations and heighten awareness around the responsibilities of alcohol sales," according to a TPD news release.
TPD Chief Adam McGill asked license holders to increase vigilance around sales and consumption of alcohol in order to prevent over-consumption, over-serving, and public order nuisances in the alleyway behind many downtown alcohol establishments.
Further, TPD also introduced Det. Sara Rodriguez to the business owners. She specializes in alcohol-related offenses and will work with businesses and the community to create safe environments for alcohol consumption, according to TPD.
At the meeting, license-holders were also encouraged to make procedural changes to further prevent minors from possessing and consuming alcohol, according to TPD.
One way downtown licensees are ensuring this occurs is by sending staff to ABC LEAD (Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drugs) training.

According to TPD, this four-hour course educates staff on ways to prevent over-serving, detect fraudulent identification, and promote safer alcohol consumption.
In March, TPD hosted one of these courses, and more than 60 people attended.
