Homecoming, Halloween, and football, they are all celebration traditions on college campuses across Minnesota. Many taking part in those festivities will choose to party at bars on or around college campuses. To remind establishments about the importance of serving alcohol responsibly and legally, and to check for illegal gambling activity, the Department of Public Safety Alcohol and Gambling Enforcement Division (DPS-AGED), in conjunction with the Gambling Control Board (GCB), will be conducting compliance checks at college campus bars throughout the fall.The random compliance checks will focus on liquor license inspections that include required license postings, records and receipts, and checking the purity of alcohol. DPS-AGED agents will also review legal gambling activities, such as pull tabs, and investigate any potentially illegal sports betting. More information can be found here.
