On June 18, 2020, Tualatin Police conducted an underage decoy operation. Underage volunteers attempted to purchase alcohol at establishments in Tualatin. Out of 10 establishments visited, a total of two sold alcohol to the underage decoy.
The goal of an underage decoy program is to reduce youth access to alcohol by encouraging licensees to verify that an individual purchasing alcohol is at least 21 years of age. The underage participants answer any questions about their age truthfully and do not use fake identification.
