Knox County, OH – Recently, the Knox County Sheriff’s Department, in partnership with the Mount Vernon City Police Department and the Knox Substance Abuse Action Team (KSAAT) conducted alcohol compliance checks at 14 retail outlets that sell alcohol in Knox County. Nearly 45% of businesses were non-compliant, meaning they sold alcohol to an underage individual.

In an effort to educate local businesses on Ohio’s liquor laws, KSAAT will host an Alcohol Server Knowledge (ASK) training on Aug. 28 at 9 am at the Knox County Health Department.

A representative from the Ohio Investigative Unit will conduct the training which will help business owners, cashiers, clerks and retailers recognize minors, detect fake ID’s and better understand the good faith acceptance. The training will also cover sales to intoxicated persons, vertical ID’s, after-hour sales, and removal of intoxicated patrons.

All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance for participating in the training.

While there is no cost to attend the training, participants are asked to RSVP. To do so, contact Ashley Didinger at the health department: 740-392-2200 ext. 2271 or
