Liquor server training in Joplin - KOAM TV 7

Liquor server training in Joplin

Updated:

Keeping alcohol out of the hands of minors means training for those who sell it.

Police say this time of year, when school is out for underage colligates or high schoolers, some   attempt to buy alcohol.

So servers are getting the know how when it comes to spotting a fake ID or a suspicious customer.

Using their own licenses, prevention specialists from Community Partnership of the Ozarks held a class in Joplin on Tuesday and showed servers how to feel and see the difference between a valid license and a fake.

They recommend having black lights to check them in bars or at stores and a guide book that shows all states licenses.

Participants also learn when they are truly responsible and the potential consequences for them and their employer.  Servers can face fines of up to $1,000 and be cited by police.

"It's beneficial to have employees come to this," says prevention specialist Erica Manahan.  "Them checking and thwarting getting caught by the law selling to an underage is really beneficial for them so they don't get the fines, they don't get their license revoked."

The new Missouri license introduced in March could be a help to servers now that it's printed vertically for those under 21.
