During Cops In Shops operations, TABC agents, with the cooperation of retailers and their employees, pose as customers or employees of an establishment and apprehend underage violators as they attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages. TABC agents also have a secondary, educational role, which is to share their expertise with the retailer's employees on such subjects as false or fake ID's, the signs of intoxication, and the physical and behavioral characteristics of minors.
In addition to apprehending underage violators and holding them accountable, TABC wants to leave the retailers with a better understanding of their legal responsibilities and with the knowledge necessary to fulfill them.
Retailers interested in scheduling a Cops In Shops session at their premises should contact the nearest TABC office.
