Teens, Law Enforcement, and Stores Collaborate on Project Sticker Shock!
Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Columbia, SC – Throughout the month of April, grocery stores in the Midlands will be “shocked” with bright green stickers reminding customers that it is illegal to provide alcohol to minors. High school students and officers from the Alcohol Enforcement Teams partner by entering stores and placing stickers and bottle hangers on products containing alcohol sharing this message: “Know the Law! It is illegal to purchase or provide alcohol for anyone under 21!”

This project is one of the activities of the “Out of Their Hands!” campaign, aimed to reduce underage drinking during the festivities surrounding prom and graduation season. Debee Early, Vice President at LRADAC, stated, “This campaign and Project Sticker Shock showcases a wonderful partnership between youth, law enforcement, and stores taking the responsibility of reminding community members that providing alcohol to anyone under the age of twenty-one is illegal.”

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crimestoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
