Alcohol and Tobacco Compliance Checks

The Hastings Police Department, in a proactive prevention effort, each year conducts two to four alcohol and tobacco compliance checks for businesses in Hastings that sell alcohol and tobacco products. A compliance check involves sending a person under the age of 21 for alcohol products or under the age of 18 for tobacco products into the business establishment who then attempts to purchase the alcohol or tobacco product to see if the business asks the underage person for their identification. If the business does illegally sell the product to the underage person the business employee that made the sale is criminally charged and the Hastings City Council takes an administrative action against the business owner which escalates in penalty for repeat offenses all the way to suspension and revocation of their license to sell alcohol or tobacco.
