Cops work to put a cork on underage drinkingPosted: Updated:
As the school season winds down for most Westchester students, police officials are gearing up to tackle the county's rising teen drinking problem.
About 100 police officers gathered in White Plains Tuesday to get a refresher course on how to best break-up noisy teen parties. They also learned how to spot the newest fake IDs on the market.
Police are also cracking down on merchants who sell liquor to minors. Officials say they have been sending undercover operatives into delis, bars and liquor stores to see if they are asked for identification before purchasing booze.
Police say its important to find out what the trends are and get current information to combat the problem of underage drinking in the county.
