Valle Vista liquor stores – Various alcohol vending establishments in the Valle Vista region of East Hemet passed a major test by the Hemet Sheriff’s Station and agents of the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agency.
On Saturday, April 6, at 10:00 a.m., members of the Hemet Sheriff’s Station and agents of the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (see: https://www.abc.ca.gov) conducted a minor decoy operation. This involves the use of minors under the age of 21 years with direct supervision of deputies and ABC Agents. During the operation, the minors attempted to purchase alcohol from eleven retail licensees in the unincorporated area of Riverside County known as Valle Vista.
All of the eleven business were found to be in compliance.
Multiple stations from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department received an ABC Alcohol Policing Partnership grant (see: https://www.abc.ca.gov/programs/grant.html). Funds from this grant are used to help fight alcohol related crimes and to educate ABC licensed businesses. The goal of the ABC APP program is to partner with local law enforcement agencies to help make communities safer.
ABC in conjunction with the Riverside Sheriff’s Department is conducting the compliance checks statewide to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors. Minor decoy operations are a tool of law enforcement that are used to ensure that licensees are complying with the law. Operations will continue within the jurisdiction of the Jurupa Valley station.
Anyone with information relevant to this operation is encouraged to call Deputy Soto at the Hemet Sheriff’s Station, (951) 791-3400.
