Police Nab 25 Who Bought Alcohol For Kids

LA MESA -- The La Mesa Police Department has been awarded a $21,668 grant from the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) to battle alcohol related crime. This is important to the city of La Mesa in order to
increase protection for youth and to keep our community safe.
The grant is one of 47 awarded in California to local law enforcement agencies through ABC’s Grant Assistance Program (GAP). The grants strengthen local law enforcement efforts by combining the efforts of local police officers and ABC agents. ABC agents have expertise in alcoholic beverage laws and can help communities reduce alcohol-related problems.
Since the ABC Grant was awarded, the La Mesa Police Department and ABC Agents have completed six Shoulder Tap Operations targeting underage drinking and those who provide alcohol to minors. These
operations consisted of undercover officers monitoring over 48 hours of alcohol sales at local businesses. Listed below are the results of the operations: 
-- 36 visits were made to local businesses. 86 citizens were solicited to purchase alcohol for a minor. Of those 86 contacted, 25 were arrested for supplying alcohol to minors.

In an effort to keep our community and our youth safe, the La Mesa Police Department and ABC will continue these operations through July of 2015.
