Minor Decoy Operations


The OLCC's minor decoy program is designed to reduce sales to minors and increase ID checking of people who appear under age 26. OLCC staff use this tool to achieve a maximum reduction in illegal alcohol and marijuana sales.


Minors & Alcohol


Keeping alcohol out of the hands of minors is a priority for the OLCC.

 

ID Checking Classes


ON HOLD until further notice

A free ID checking class is held in Portland on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.  Classes are held at 16250 SE McLoughlin Blvd. Milwaukie, OR 97267.

Class time is 4:00 p.m. and lasts for approximately 1-1/2 hours.  Registration is not necessary. 

Contact OLCC offices around the state for information on the classes they offer.

For questions, please call 503-872-5252 or email: olcc.dispatch@oregon.gov.


For Private Security Personnel


Department of Public Safety Standards and Training Certification
The Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) administers certification / licensure of private security constituents in accordance with ORS 181.870-991.  The private security industry is regulated to ensure the interests of the public are adequately served and protected, and to uphold the professionalism and integrity of the industry.
 
For more information or an application, please contact DPSST at http://oregon.gov/DPSST/ or by phone at 503-378-8531.


Make a Complaint


Most businesses that sell alcohol or marijuana obey the laws and want to be good neighbors. But sometimes problems do occur.  

Public safety is our first priority. If you have information on a business that is not obeying laws, we want to know. If you have a complaint about a business that sells alcohol or marijuana, please fill out a Complaint Form and return it to the nearest OLCC office. An inspector will read your report and decide what action to take. 

We can enforce the liquor and marijuana laws best when people with a complaint identify themselves and are willing to testify about the incident. We will also take complaints from people who want to remain anonymous or do not want to testify.
