Bell Gardens Anti-crime Grant Renewed

By City News Service

The California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has renewed a one-year grant to help Bell Gardens reduce alcohol-related crime, specifically the sale of alcohol to minors.

The initial grant was used for public education, enforcement and licensee training and according to the city resulted in business owners coming into compliance with ABC laws, as well as numerous citations and arrests.

The new grant will be used to fund police officer overtime related to operations targeting the prevention of alcohol sales to minors, intoxicated patrons, illegal solicitation of alcohol and other criminal activity related to alcohol and drugs, the city said in a press release.
