Compliance Checks

By: News Release
Jul 4th, 2019

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office completed randomly selected alcohol compliance checks in Clayton County and 85% of the checked establishments passed!  In recognition of their dedication and outstanding performance to reduce underage drinking, each establishment will receive a certificate from local law enforcement and 5C (Clayton County Community Collaboration Council), who helped fund the alcohol compliance checks.  5C will continue to work with local law enforcement to fund additional alcohol compliance checks throughout Clayton County.  Completing two checks each year per establishment has proven to reduce the availability of alcohol to those under 21, thereby reducing underage drinking.  By asking for IDs and the age of the purchaser, we are reducing one avenue for youth to obtain alcohol.  We thank those establishments that are diligent in their efforts to reduce underage drinking and encourage everyone to keep up the great work!  For those interested, Substance Abuse Services for Clayton County conducts Responsible Beverage Server Training; contact them for more information at 245-1546.  If you would like to know about other efforts 5C is doing to reduce underage drinking and other drugs, please visit our website at
