Cops in Shops

Cops in Shops® is a unique partnership between retailers and law enforcement that helps stop illegal underage alcohol sales and prevent adults from buying alcohol for minors. Teams of officers are placed in strategic participating retail outlets. They usually consist of one undercover officer who works inside the store while a second officer is positioned outside the establishment to apprehend adults who procure alcohol for youth. Cops in Shops® places the focus on the perpetrators — minors who try to purchase alcohol illegally and adults that try to purchase alcohol illegally for minors.
