Compliance Checks held in Buffalo & Kearney Counties


(Grand Island, Neb.)- The Nebraska State Patrol conducted compliance checks at 36 retail outlets in Buffalo and Kearney Counties.

During the checks held Friday, December 13, three businesses in Buffalo County and one business in Kearney County were found to be non-compliant after selling alcohol to minors. The retail outlets checked during the effort included convenience, liquor and grocery stores, as well as restaurants and bars.

Law enforcement performs compliance checks to ensure that businesses are complying with the state's alcohol laws and to decrease youth access to alcohol.

Compliance checks in Buffalo and Kearney Counties were conducted thanks in part to a $2,310 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
