Dear Editor: During the week of November 21, the Conyers Police Department and the Georgia Department of Revenue conducted inspections of local restaurants and retail stores to test whether they were adhering to the rules and regulations in our ordinances relating to serving or selling alcohol to underage persons. We checked a total of 35 businesses and only four sold to an underage patron. These businesses did not sell to our undercover buyer. We want to commend them for having procedures in place to ensure their employees are trained in the proper checking of identification in order to ensure that they do not sell any alcohol to underage persons.

We contribute this positive outcome in part to the City's Responsible Alcohol Sales and Service (RASS) workshop that has been in place for over a year. Of course, this would not have had the same outcome if these 35 organizations did not have a commitment to training your staff and requiring that they adhere to the alcohol serving regulations. We want to thank them for having the commitment to helping to protect our citizens by keeping underage patrons from obtaining alcohol.

Their commitment to training their employees and requiring that the employees be aware of current laws regarding selling alcohol to underage persons is duly noted and appreciated. Their efforts are helping to make our community safer. To these businesses we say - please keep up the good work and let us know if there is anything that we can do to help you.
