The checks focused on businesses that sell alcohol. The purpose of the operation was to insure that these businesses are checking customer's identification and not selling alcohol to under-aged individuals.
Officers checked 59 businesses, 54 of which complied by asking for identification. The five businesses that did not comply were cited for Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor and given municipal court dates.
Olathe Police Chief Steven Menke says "This is just a part of the police department's continuing effort to prevent under-aged drinking and insure that businesses that sell alcohol are doing their part to keep our community safe."
A statement release about the checks says that while the high number of compliant businesses is encouraging, it is the continued goal of the Olathe Police Department to attain 100% compliance throughout the city. Police will continue to routinely conduct compliance checks throughout the upcoming year.
Olathe Police also conducted a DUI check lane March 29th. Results of that check lane can be found here.
