OLCC: Most in Redmond, Terrebonne pass 'sting'

BEND, Ore. -

Eleven of 17 businesses visited in Terrebonne and Redmond recently passed a check for alcohol sales to minors by refusing to sell alcohol to a minor volunteer, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission reported Friday.

The sales checks were performed March  1 and resulted in a compliance rate of 65 percent, which is below the 2013 statewide average of 84 percent.

“We see the best results when licensees and their employees are consistently evaluating each ID they come across in the same way,” says Katie Siefkes, OLCC's Bend regional manager. “If they are not certain about the ID, they are well within their rights to say no to the sale. OLCC staff are available to answer any questions about minor decoy missions or how to detect a fake ID.”

The commission performs the minor sales checks in an effort to reduce drinking by minors, which is a serious problem throughout the state. The OLCC tests licensed liquor businesses throughout the year. Licensees or their employees could be held liable for alcohol-related damages and injuries if they serve or sell alcohol to a minor.

The OLCC offers a free training course on how to check IDs. Participants learn how to identify false identification and the laws regarding minors and alcohol. Additional training opportunities are available including classes for store clerks and service permit holders. Interested persons can call the local OLCC office to schedule a training session. 

During the sales checks, a minor volunteer attempts to purchase alcohol from a licensed business to see if staff are checking IDs correctly and refusing to sell alcohol to anyone under 21.

Commission inspectors or other law enforcement officers supervise the minor volunteers.

The volunteers carry their own legal ID that identifies them as under 21 and do not disguise their age or lie to encourage the sale of alcohol.  The Oregon Driver license for a minor carries a red border around the picture with the words “Minor Until” followed by the date of his/her 21st birthday.

Under Oregon law, businesses in cities with a population of 20,000 or more have an equal chance of being randomly selected for a minor decoy compliance check. A business can also be selected for a compliance check if there is a documented complaint of sales to minors. Businesses in cities with a population under 20,000 and unincorporated areas in counties are not subject to these selection requirements.
