Alcohol Awareness/Compliance Server Training

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office is collaborating with local retailers and organizations that sell alcoholic beverages by offering free Alcohol Awareness/Compliance Server Training to ensure the safety of our residents and visitors. 

This training is designed to prevent intoxication, drunk driving, and underage drinking by giving employees/employers who serve alcohol the knowledge and confidence they need to recognize potential alcohol-related issues, including: 

  • Specific laws that regulate selling or serving to minors and intoxicated people
  • The effects of alcohol on customers
  • The correct way to check IDs and prevent the sale of alcohol to minors or individuals with expired identification or alcohol restrictions
  • How and why to refuse the sale of alcohol in specific situations
  • How to protect themselves and their employer from liability  

The Sheriff’s Office encourages all businesses that sell alcoholic beverages on-sale, off-sale or both, have their staff participate in this training.
