This enforcement program is ongoing and more compliance checks are scheduled, according to Capt. Andy Le Beau, who said, “We wanted to see how prevalent the problem was and found that 16% of businesses sold alcohol to under aged persons.  We hope that our enforcement campaign will cause those who serve alcohol in our community to be cautious.  It is our hope, now that we have released this information, that we not catch anyone in violation the next time we conduct this operation.”
Lt. Danny Houck  of Boone Police Department said, “This alcohol enforcement effort was made possible through a partnership between the Boone Police Department and the Western Youth Network.” And that,  “We were fortunate enough to partner with the Watauga Youth Network on a grant program that provided the funding necessary for this effort.”
