The National Commission on Crime Prevention (NCCP) in the Ministry of National Security is seeking to raise public awareness on the Liquor License Act.

Speaking on Wednesday on WEFM’s Morning Programme, Inspector Atland Browne of the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force said the public awareness sessions are particularly geared at addressing the issue of the selling of alcoholic beverages to minors.

Inspector Browne said there are a number of risks associated with minors indulging in over consumption of alcohol.

Meanwhile, Superintendent of Prisons, Brenton Charles, said the NCCP is seeking to discuss with the government the possibility of having legislation tabled that would require persons to present an Identification (ID) card to prove they are of the legal age to purchase alcohol or to get into some types of licensed premises.
