CU Bars in the News; Police issue 32 citations in sweep of bars

From the News-Gazette (and their horribly redesigned website that really sucks).

Police issue 32 citations in sweep of bars

The bars in question are:Clybourne, Fire Haus, Joe's Brewery, Legends, Geovanti's, and Kam's.

Illinois State Police and Champaign police issued 32 citations for underage drinking Friday under its ongoing Operation Campus/Tap program.

The purpose of the program is to reduce underage drinking among college-age and high school youths.

The Illinois Secretary of State may suspend or revoke the driver's license of people found with illegal identification.

Suspensions may be for up to one year or longer. Minors convicted of purchase, possession or consumption of alcohol will face a one-year suspension of their driver's license.

The Operation Campus/Tap program is funded through a grant from the United States Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention? They don't look like they are actively PREVENTING anything, with 32 citations, it seems more like they are just punishing people who they have missed with their prevention.
