Chief Joseph Bennett reports that the Hopkinton Police Department will be conducting underage Alcohol Compliance Checks over the next few months. The Hopkinton Police will visit each licensed establishment to ensure compliance with all the rules, regulations, and policies related to selling or furnishing an alcoholic beverage to a person under 21.

These laws, rules, and regulations can be found utilizing the following resources: 1. Chapter 138 (malegislature.gov)

These Compliance Checks are part of the Town of Hopkinton’s continued efforts to prevent problems related to underage alcohol consumption, curb alcohol abuse and reduce Operating Under the Influence (OUI) incidents involving teenagers. The Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission requires that local authorities notify the public that they intend to conduct compliance checks prior to doing so.
