Ohio authorities urge alcohol server education


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — As students get ready to return to Ohio’s campuses over the next several weeks, state authorities are urging operators of bars and carry-outs to make sure their staffs know the law.

The Ohio Investigative Unit says liquor permit holders can schedule a free Alcohol Server Knowledge course.

OIU agents provide instruction on laws about sale and/or consumption of alcohol. They also cover topics such as false identification, employment of minors and penalties for those found in violation.

Capt. Gary Allen says the educational courses can protect both customers and the establishment.

In 2015, more than 3,000 liquor permit establishment employees completed the training. OIU provides the employer with a letter of attendance and completion.
