Fernandina Police offer vendors a FREE alcohol education class to understand the moral and legal issues regarding alcohol abuse.
The two hour course will provide participants with the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to detect underage persons attempting to purchase alcoholic beverages and tobacco products, issues related to serving alcohol to intoxicated persons, and the liability associated with business patrons driving under the influence. This Course will be given at no cost. The tentative lesson plan includes our underage operative program, the four valid types of identification that are accepted in the United States, detection and recognition of a fake ID, issues related to driving under the influence, and a question/answer session.
The training will be held in the Community Room at the Fernandina Beach Police Department, located at 1525 Lime Street, on the following dates and times:
September 10, 2009, 6:00 ‚Äì 8:00 p.m.
September 14, 2009, 6:00 ‚Äì 8:00 p.m.
Training starts promptly at 6:00 p.m. Late comers will be turned away.
Businesses that sell and serve alcohol and tobacco should consider taking advantage of this local, no-cost training for themselves and their staff. Contact Suzanne Bass in the Police Chief‚Äôs Office, at 277-7342, ext. 224, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule training dates.
As an incentive for businesses to participate, the Nassau Alcohol, Crime and Drug Abatement Coalition (NACDAC) will hold a drawing after the two classes have been completed, and the winner will be eligible to participate in a Fake ID Scanner Loaner Program. All participants are eligible for the drawing.
This is strictly a volunteer program. The goal is to further reduce Underage Sales and related violations in Florida.
