60% of Portland Licensees Sell to Minor Decoys in Recent Operation

The OLCC conducts minor decoy operations across the state.  Licensees are selected in two primary ways for these operations: random and targeted.

First, the OLCC selects a pool of licensees at random to be tested for compliance.  Any licensee may be selected at random at any time.

Second, the OLCC responds to citizen complaints and will conduct minor decoy operations and compliance checks for licensees that are subject to such complaints.  In addition, the OLCC typically will retest licensees that fail a minor decoy operation.  Both approaches target licensees that may be compliance risks.

The recent 60% compliance rate is well below the state wide average of 81%.  Click here for more information.
