11/07/2018 Tobacco compliance

 

LYON COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE HAS PATRNERED WITH IOWA ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES DIVISION FOR TOBACCO, ALTERNATIVE NICOTINE AND VAPOR PRODUCT EDUCATION AND ENFORCEMENT SINCE 2001.

 

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office has taken a pledge to keep tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products out of the hands of Lyon County youth.

 

Known as I-PLEDGE, the program is a partnership with the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division (ABD) to educate local retailers and to enforce Iowa’s tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor product laws.  

 

Since the program’s inception in 2000, the statewide tobacco compliance rate has grown to 91%. By participating in the program, the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office has committed to do its part to increase the compliance rate even more this year.

 

I-PLEDGE places emphasis on retailer training. Clerks who successfully complete an online training course and then pass an exam will become I-PLEDGE certified. This allows a retail establishment to use an affirmative defense against a civil penalty if the certified clerk makes an illegal sale.

 

Lyon County Deputies will also be conducting compliance checks on local establishments as part of the I-PLEDGE program. Underage customers, under the supervision of law enforcement officials, will enter establishments and attempt to buy tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products. Clerks who make the illegal sale will be cited on the spot.

 

Criminal penalties for selling tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products to a minor include a $100 fine for a first offense, a $250 fine for a second offense and a $500 fine for third and subsequent offenses.

 

To take the I-PLEDGE training or search certification records go to https://abd.iowa.gov/.

 

The core objective of the program is to prevent illegal sales of tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products by educating retailers and increasing awareness of changes in Iowa's tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor product laws. The I-PLEDGE Retailer Training is offered online at no costs. After successfully passing the final test, participants will receive a printable certificate. The certificate is valid for a period of two years. Establishments choosing to participate in I-PLEDGE Retailer Training are granted an affirmative defense, which may be used once in a four-year period. A business may avoid civil prosecution if a tobacco, alternative tobacco or vapor product sale-to-minor occurs in their establishment. In order for the business to take advantage of the affirmative defense, the employee guilty of the violation must have been I-PLEDGE certified prior to the time the offense occurred. Only the business is eligible to avoid civil penalty, the guilty employee will still be subject to a fine and his/her certification will be revoked. However, the training may be retaken for recertification.

 

The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office recently completed county wide tobacco compliance checks. All tobacco retailers in the county are checked for compliance with Iowa’s age restriction on tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor product sales. There is a total of twenty retailers in Lyon County that sell tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products.

 

THE LYON COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2015 THERE WAS 100 PERCENT COMPLIANCE WITH IOWA’S TOBACCO, ALTERNATIVE NICOTINE AND VAPOR PRODUCT LAWS. Congratulations and thank you to all the tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor product retailers in Lyon County for doing your part to keep these products out of the hands of Lyon County’s youth.
