CLOVIS - Clovis Police Officers along with agents of the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) have cited two clerks for selling alcohol to minors on February 24, 2017. The actions were the result of a minor decoy operation in which minors under the direct supervision of Clovis Police Officers, attempted to purchase alcohol from 45 retail licensees in the city of Clovis.

Those who sold to the minors face a minimum fine of $250, and/or 24 to 32 hours of community service for a first violation. In addition, ABC will take administrative action against the alcoholic beverage license of the business where alcohol was sold to a minor. That may include a fine, a suspension of the license, or the permanent revocation of the license.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) through the department’s Grant Assistance Program. Results of the Clovis Police Department/California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC)-funded “Minor Sales” decoy operation from 4 p.m. until 11 p.m. are as follows:

  • 45 locations that sell or serve alcohol visited.
  • 2 people cited at 2 locations for selling alcohol to minors.
  • 6 plain clothes Clovis Police officers and 2 plain clothes Alcoholic Beverage Control Agents participated in the operation.
  • 2 minor decoys participated.
