New Castle United for Youth is pleased to share the Town of New Castle Police Department’s press release regarding alcohol compliance checks conducted in November and supported by NCUFY. Law enforcement compliance checks are a long standing proven strategy in reducing availability of alcohol to minors. The New Castle compliance checks demonstrated that our retailers are acting responsibly and following alcohol sales and service laws. We can be proud to live in a community where so many are working together to keep our youth healthy and safe.
Chief Charles Ferry is pleased to announce that the New Castle Police Department conducted alcohol compliance checks at 17 licensed establishments and that all businesses passed. These compliance checks were supported by New Castle United for Youth. The department’s Alcohol Compliance Unit performed the checks during the month of November. All establishments followed state laws and prohibited the sale of alcohol to a minor. The establishments visited include:
Hilltop Wines and Spirits
Chappaqua Wine and Spirits
DeCicco & Sons
Dodds Liquor City
Spoon Asian Fusion
Quaker Hill Tavern
Le Jardin Du Roi
Old Stone Trattoria
Spaccarelli’s Italian Restaurant
Working in cooperation with the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office, the New Castle Police accompanied underage buyers who attempted to purchase alcoholic beverages. Each location refused to serve buyers when they failed to present identification verifying that they were of legal drinking age. Chief Ferry stated that a town wide alcohol sales compliance check was overdue and thanked the New Castle United for Youth Coalition for funding the initiative and for the work they are doing to keep alcohol and drugs away from New Castle youth.
