Alcohol and Tobacco Compliance

The Owatonna Police Department, with the assistance of underage operatives, conducts alcohol and tobacco compliance checks with retailers.  Compliance checks provide a proactive effort to keep alcohol and tobacco out of the hands of our youngest community members.  These checks are done at least two times per year and operatives are trained, photographed, and equipped with electronic listening devices so officers can monitor the conversations.
