10 businesses cited for selling alcohol to minors

Olathe Police Department’s School Resource Officer Unit the night of Friday, April 27, conducted alcohol compliance checks throughout Olathe.

These compliance checks focused on businesses that sell alcohol. The purpose of the operation was to insure they are checking customer’s identification and not selling alcohol to under-age individuals. Out of 52 establishments checked, 42 complied by asking for ID.

The 10 establishments that did not comply were cited for selling alcohol to minors and given municipal court dates. The names of those businesses were not provided by the police.

It is the continued goal of the Olathe Police Department to attain 100 percent compliance throughout the city. The Olathe Police Department would like to thank those establishments that passed the compliance check.

Businesses and the community as a whole are asked to help in our efforts to keep alcohol out of the hands of minors. Continuous education and routine compliance checks are just part of the police department’s efforts to prevent under-age drinking and insure that businesses that sell alcohol are doing their part to help keep our community safe.
