Oct. 14, 2016: Recently, the Knox County Sheriff’s Department, in partnership with the Mount Vernon City Police Department and the Knox Substance Abuse Action Team ( KSAAT) conducted alcohol compliance checks at 18 retail outlets that sell alcohol in Knox County. Nearly 30% of businesses were non-compliant, meaning they sold alcohol to an underage individual.
In an effort to educate local businesses on Ohio’s liquor laws, KSAAT will host an Alcohol Server Knowledge (ASK) training on Oct. 18 at 11 am at the Knox County Health Department.
A representative from the Ohio Investigative Unit willl conduct the training which will help businesses owners, cashiers, clerks and retailers recognize minors, detect fake ID’s and better understand the good faith acceptance. The training will also cover sales to intoxicated persons, vertical ID’s, after-hour sales, and removal of intoxicated patrons.
All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance for participating in the training.
