Alcohol Vendor Training and Education ProgramFernandina Beach, FL – The Fernandina Beach Police Department is again presenting their Vendor Training and Education Program. The program is designed to support and supplement the corporate training that local stores, restaurants and bars already have in place, and will focus on the moral and legal responsibilities associated with 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:

January 19, 2011, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
January 20, 2011, 6:00 – 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’s Office, at 277-7342, ext. 224, or e-mail sbass@fbfl.org to schedule training dates.

This program is strictly voluntary for area businesses, the goal being to further reduce underage sales and related violations in Florida.
