“Eight out of Eleven Businesses were Noncompliant in Recent Bar Checks”
On June 27, 2020, ABLE Commission, Grove Police Department and ROCMND Regional Prevention Network conducted bar checks in Delaware County. The purpose of the bar checks is to ensure liquor license holders are following Oklahoma laws concerning the sale of alcohol.
When the moderation of alcohol laws changed in 2018, so did the requirements for new license holders or those who let their license lapse. These licenses are required to attend a state-approved training within fourteen days of the license. Several area businesses needed the necessary training. Citations were issued for having an unlicensed manager and purchase of alcohol other than a wholesaler.
ROCMND Area Youth Services Prevention Network agency offers the state-approved training to the area licensee free of charge. Anyone needing the training or would like a refresher course can visit ROCMND.org and register for a class.
ROCMND RPC is funded through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), and the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS).
