With Georgia Southern University's homecoming weekend approaching, local law enforcement authorities are warning residents and local businesses of compliance checks to combat underage drinking as well as overcrowded gathering places.

Statesboro Public Safety Director Wendell Turner said in a news release issued Wednesday that the Statesboro Department of Public Safety will conduct alcohol beverage control operations Thursday through Saturday, partnering with the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office and the Department of Revenue.

He first publicly announced the operations during the City Council meeting Tuesday morning.

"The goal is to reduce the incidents of underage alcohol consumption and prevent underage alcohol sales in Statesboro by making the intentions of the Department of Public Safety known to the public and businesses prior to the operation," he said in the release.

Statesboro police will conduct undercover operations at alcohol-licensed establishments in the city, while the Statesboro Fire Department will conduct occupancy load inspections at locations that appear to be overcrowded, Turner said.

A list of maximum occupancy loads for alcohol pouring establishments is available to the left of this article text. Turner said he hopes the reminder will encourage businesses to "self-monitor" their alcohol sales and crowd control procedures.
