OLCC's minor decoy program is looking for volunteers

The OLCC is recruiting individuals 17-20 years old, and look their age, who would be willing to volunteer their time to conduct minor decoy operations.

The OLCC conducts compliance checks of licensed premises using persons under the age of 21 to attempt to buy alcoholic beverages. These checks are an effective and efficient way to reduce the availability of alcohol to minors.

Participants will gain knowledge of law enforcement operations and the criminal justice system. They will also learn how a regulatory agency such as the OLCC works, and may find this experience useful in pursuing a future career and personal goals.

In order to qualify for this program, minor decoy applicants must at least:
  • Be 17-20 years of age
  • Appear under 26 years of age (closer to their true age)
  • Not have been cited for a liquor law violation (Minor In Possession, misrepresentation of age - showing false or fake ID, etc)
  • Not have a criminal record
  • Possess a valid state-issued driver license or ID card
The OLCC will provide reference letters and/or documentation confirming volunteer hours. These volunteer hours have been used for high school and/or college credits. Operations may be conducted during the day or evening hours depending on the work and personal schedules of participants.

If you are interested in participating in this program, call 503-872-5208.
