Operation Prevent Cracks Down on Underage Drinking and Fake IDs

The DMVs Operation Prevent is now taking action. State agencies are partnering with law enforcement to prevent the use of fake IDs to obtain alcohol by announcing the launch of coordinated sweeps during the summer concert season and at other underage hotspots as part of the ongoing effort to deter underage drinking and prevent the use of fake IDs. These sweeps will be unannounced at various concert venues and places where young adults congregate across the state, and will be carried out by the DMV in partnership with State Liquor Authority, New York State Park Police and New York State Police, and local law enforcement agencies. Patrons under the age of 21 found to be using fake IDs or false documents with the intent of purchasing alcohol can be arrested and have their license revoked for a minimum of 90 days or up to one year. “Too often, innocent victims and young lives are lost and families’ dreams are shattered because of underage drinking,” said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. She added, “Let’s enjoy world-class entertainment and all that this State has to offer and get home safely.”
