In the fall of 2016, SAFE and Virginia ABC sponsored compliance checks at 124 retail outlets that sell alcohol to determine if they comply with the state law by not selling to underage persons. The same stores were checked in the spring of 2017. Ninety-three stores were in compliance in both the fall and spring. Teen volunteers, working with undercover Chesterfield police officers, conducted the checks. The ninety-three stores in compliance were thanked in the Chesterfield Observer ad below.
