Project Sticker Shock targets underage drinking in Hanover County
HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Hanover County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) announced Wednesday morning their participation in Project Sticker Shock program.
HCSO will be participating in the project on February 4 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Sticker Shock is a youth-led prevention program designed to support existing and encourages new community activism, cooperative efforts, and community capacity building to combat underage drinking and its related programs — specifically, adults providing alcohol to minors.
Project Sticker Shock seeks to reach those persons 21 years of age or older who might illegally purchase alcohol and provide it to minors.
Youth will visit participating retailers accompanied by the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, Ashland Police Department, and members from Hanover County Community Services.
“They will place prevention stickers on multi-packs of beer, wine coolers, and other alcohol products that might appeal to underage drinkers,” HCSO press release said.
