Town of New Windsor Press Releases

Over the last few months, members of the Town of New Windsor Police Department have been working with local business owners, in bringing attention to the problem of underage alcohol sales in New Windsor.  During this effort, members of our department visited 24 businesses in town, who are licensed to sell alcoholic beverages.  These businesses included convenience stores, supermarkets and liquor stores.  In most instances, members sat down with owners and/or employees and discussed what would be an acceptable form of identification purchaser should provide, in order to show proof of age.  Also discussed was the consequences and possible criminal and civil penalties the employee and business would face, should they fail to request proof of age from the purchaser and make an alcohol sale to a person under the age of 21.  

As part of this conversation, the business owners and employees were also advised that the New Windsor Police Department has a zero tolerance and would strictly enforce the law, when it comes to underage alcohol sales.  We told the business owners that we periodically conduct undercover operations, where underage decoys are utilized to attempt to make alcohol purchases from their establishments.  The goal of this operation was to gain 100% compliance of the law, and to educate the business owners and employees of the seriousness of this issue, while developing a relationship with the business owners and employees, whom the police department regularly calls upon for assistance.  Det. Sgt. Sager said, “We were not looking to simply arrest these business owners or employees, without first having a conversation about the issue.  Many times, we call upon these business owners to assist with investigations, by allowing us access to their surveillance video, transactions records and so forth.”  

A couple of weeks ago, members of the New Windsor Police Department, along with several underage decoys, conducted an undercover operation, where the decoys made several attempts to purchase alcohol at all of these local businesses.  We are happy to report that in every instance, the employee requested identification and the decoys were refused the sale. 

The New Windsor Police Department would like to acknowledge the local businesses, for their efforts in combating this issue of underage alcohol sales and possession.  We will continue to conduct these undercover operations, with the hopes of continued success and 100% compliance.
