NY State cracks down on underage drinking!
NY stepping up the fight against underage drinking as fall semester begins.
With the start of the new fall semester, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced a recent, multi-agency effort to stop underage drinking.
With the likes of the State Police, state liquor regulators and the DMV banding together, efforts will include more in-depth training of bar workers, out reach and prevention methods and raids on campus drinking locations.
According to the Chicago Tribune, just last year NY State prosecuted more than 1,500 alcohol license holders for selling to underage patrons. Law enforcement raids on bars led to 760 arrests and the confiscation of over 750 fake IDs.
Why leave your business at risk?
Revlr Venue offers a way for venues and events to prevent receiving business ending penalties from underage patronage. Equip your doorman or security team with the powerful, lightweight, easy to use Revlr Venue Smart ID Scanner. Not only does this device detect when an underage or invalid ID is presented as a means to enter, but it acts a deterrent - preventing others from trying to illegally enter! Custom scanner settings allow for you to set the minimum age requirement for entry. You can also set a desired "double scan time limit" that allows you to set a time span in which you are alerted to when the same ID is scanned more than once. This prevents legal patrons from passing back their IDs to underage patrons once they've already entered. You can even label banned and preferred customers based on their demeanor at the door.
But wait, there's more!
Equipped with the Revlr Venue Smart ID Scanner, not only are you protecting your business, but you're building your own valuable demographic reports. The days of paying egregious fees to outside companies for demographic reports on your clientele are over. With each scan, you'll learn more about your consumer base than ever before!
