BPD plans crackdown on underage drinking around Sat.’s BSU football game

The Boise Police are planning to crack down on underage drinking around this Saturday's BSU home football game against Colorado State, including both underage consumption and adults who provide alcohol to people under age 21. In addition, the police will be patrolling for open-container violations on public streets and sidewalks, in city parks and within 250 feet of the river; parking violations; driving under the influence; and littering. “Officers want citizens to celebrate responsibly,” the BPD announced in a news release; you can read it here. “For public safety, Boise Police will be checking for illegal alcohol use in the campus area. Increases in people on neighborhood streets, parks and parking lots in the Broadway area on game days has resulted in increased complaints and concerns about illegal alcohol use and related problems like disorderly conduct, underage drinking, drunk driving, assaults, urinating in public, loud parties and littering.”
  

BPD: Fewer local businesses selling alcohol to minors

The Boise Police say area businesses are getting better about refusing to sell alcohol to minors; the BPD's latest alcohol compliance check yielded just a 7 percent failure rate, down from 20 percent in checks in late August and late September. Of 59 businesses checked over the weekend, only four failed, BPD reports, by selling alcohol to 18- or 19-year-olds who offered their real Idaho state I.D. Violations can bring fines and business license suspensions.
