Four Collinsville restaurants have been cited for serving liquor to minors, police announced Monday.

Last Thursday, Collinsville police conducted a round of alcohol compliance checks on 27 restaurants in the city. According to a news release from the department, these checks are done periodically to decrease alcohol sales to minors and reduce alcohol-related injuries.

“By decreasing alcohol availability, we believe that these compliance checks will also reduce alcohol-related problems and crime amongst youth,” police stated in the release.
