Buffalo Council Accepts Grants For Compliance Checks

Buffalo Police Chief Jason Carder brought contracts for grant funding for tobacco and alcohol compliance checks at local retail establishments before the city council to consider at their Tuesday meeting.

The two grants, which are for not more than $3,400 each, are provided through the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police (WASCOP) and will allow the Buffalo Police Department to conduct the compliance checks in the coming year.

The funds will be used to reimburse the BPD at $85 per inspection, which they can (a) pay the officer conducting the compliance check double time, (b) purchase gift certificates to present to retail clerks that are in compliance, and (c) pay the assisting minor/youth $10 per compliance inspection.

According to the agreements, the first compliance check needs to be completed between January 1st, 2020 and March 31st, 2020.
The second will need to be completed between April 1st, 2020 and June 10th, 2020.

Buffalo's City Council voted to accept grant funding for alcohol and tobacco compliance checks.
