Liquor Compliance Checks

 Brookline Liquor Stings

The Brookline Police Department will be conducting liquor stings, which involve liquor compliance checks starting now throughout the year. These stings will be conducted at all liquor licensed establishments, including package stores, restaurants and variety stores. These compliance checks are part of the duties of the department’s liquor control officer and will be done on a continuous basis throughout the year.

Preventing underage drinking is everyone’s responsibility. Compliance checks reassure youths do not have easy access to alcohol and that people over 21 years of age are not buying alcohol for underage youths, including employees and liquor license holders. Such activities and frequent oversight of alcohol retailers increases compliances.

Thank you,
Brookline Police Department
