The La Grange Police Department received a grant with Partnership For Success (PFS) funded by Seven Counties Services and the Department for Behavioral Health Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities.

The grant will allow for extra enforcement to combat underage drinking in La Grange and Oldham County. The grant reimburses the La Grange Police Department to target individuals who are underage, that are drinking or in possession of alcohol. The grant also targets businesses who allow the sale of alcohol to minors. If a business sells to a minor during the course of this initiative, they will charged according to state and city laws.

The grant runs through the end of June 2014 and officers will be out in force looking for underage drinking.

Anyone with knowledge of underage drinking, establishments that sell to underage persons or any other crime that is being committed is encouraged to call the La Grange Police Department at 222-0111.
