Upcoming Alcohol Compliance Checks

Over the next several months, the La Crosse Police Department will be conducting random alcohol compliance checks with licensed alcohol establishments in the city of La Crosse.  These checks are being done as part of a county-wide grant through the La Crosse County Prevention Network. The grant is a STOP grant (Sober Truth On Preventing underage drinking), which is funded by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). Other agencies La Crosse County will also be conducting checks in part with the STOP grant.

The La Crosse Police Department has sent out a notice letters to all 178 Class A and B alcohol license holders to let them know that we would be performing these checks. This letter was sent in order to notify the establishment or retail outlet of the checks and to offer every opportunity to train and prepare employees to prevent the sale of alcoholic beverages to underage persons.

The La Crosse Police Department is committed to working with our local businesses to educate and improve the level of responsible serving in our community.
