In its continued effort to ensure minors and merchants are following the law as it relates to alcohol use and sales, the Folsom Police Special Investigation Unit conducted a Minor Decoy/Shoulder Tap Operation on Friday October 21, 2011.
A minor decoy is any person, under the age of 21, who assists police with identifying and apprehending suspects who violate laws associated to alcohol ordinances. The Folsom Police Department Special Investigation Unit, in coordination with the Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC), carefully selects individuals older than 18 years of age with no criminal history and no suspected alcohol violations associated with their character.
The following is a summary of Friday’s operation:
Through the assistance of grant funding by ABC, Folsom Police Department is afforded the opportunity to conduct such investigations, and thereby continue its efforts in the prevention of tragedies related to youth and alcohol.
