With Operation “Cancel the Keg”, members of the public can call the 2nd Precinct at 854-8254 to speak to a police officer regarding an upcoming party that they have knowledge of where there may be underage drinking or limited adult supervision. Armed with this information, Second Precinct officers will assume a proactive approach and visit the location prior to the party to provide residents and / or the homeowner with:
- The provisions of the Suffolk County Social Host Law and the penalties for violations thereof and
- Other consequences of hosting a party which may be in violation of assorted town codes and state laws.
