The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office will host two alcohol-sales compliance seminars today at Lake Tahoe.
The seminars are two hours in length and will be held at the Horizon Casino Resort in Stateline.
The first class begins at 9 a.m.; the second is at 11 a.m.
The seminars are designed to instruct business owners, managers, supervisors, clerks, bartenders, waitresses or any other person involved in the legal sales of alcohol on the following:
— Federal, state and county liquor laws.
— Douglas County Liquor Board policy.
— Establishing a valid company policy for sales of alcohol.
— Steps for preventing alcohol sales to underage youths and limiting liability.
— Consequences for violating liquor-sales laws.
— How to check IDs thoroughly.
— Recognizing characteristics of false IDs.
— Questions to ask customers attempting to purchase alcohol.
— Dealing with hostile or uncooperative customers.
The classes are free to attend. For enrollment, contact Capt. David Aymami at (775) 586-7251 or Sgt. Jim Halsey at (775) 782-9931.
Information provided at these seminars has limited the liability of many businesses and employees by reducing or eliminating illegal sales of alcohol to minors within Douglas County.
The classes come highly recommended by Sheriff Ron Pierini for owners/employees of any business which sells alcohol on- or off-premises.
