Beagle: Can I get a comment about underage drinking in Monroe?
Chief Homer: I believe there continues to be consumption of alcohol by underage individuals in Monroe.  Monroe is very similar to many communities in Suburban America.  Underage consumption is not at epidemic proportions here in Monroe.  If it was, more business would be found selling during compliance checks.  Also the patrol officers would be overwhelmed with youthful drinking parties and DUIs.  We have a few of both but not enough to consider it an epidemic.   I am not saying it is totally under control, there is underage drinking.  Unfortunately adults still buy for youths.  There are still big brothers and sisters and parents who provide.  We all know it can be gotten by those who really want to get some.  There is still shoplifting.  I personally feel that “Compliance Checks” of businesses assists Monroe in making it more difficult for those wanting to purchase.  Compliance Checks also assists the business owner in policing his own business.  It is usually not the owner but an employee who makes the sale.  Business owners in Monroe have been very cooperative in law enforcement’s efforts to stop underage purchasing of alcoholic beverages.
