In an effort to decrease underage and high-risk drinking, the Baltimore County Department of Health developed the Cooperating Taverns and Responsible Retailers' Program. The purpose of this program is to recognize the efforts of responsible alcohol retailers in Baltimore County. Alcohol establishment owners who sign the Cooperating Taverns and Alcohol Retailers’ Agreement, receive a window cling to inform the community of their commitment to implementing responsible service practices. 

The Cooperating Taverns and Responsible Retailers' Program is supported by the Baltimore County Liquor Board, the Baltimore County Police Department and the Baltimore County Licensed Beverage Association.

The Cooperating Taverns and Alcohol Retailers’ Agreement includes a list of responsible service practices, which are important in the prevention of underage drinking such as:

  • Prohibiting drinking games on the premises
  • Discouraging the use of alcohol ads that appeal to youth
  • Avoiding inexpensive drink specials that attract youth
  • Training employees in responsible beverage service practices
  • Diligently checking patrons for false identification

Preventing Underage Drinking

The process of reducing youth access to alcohol requires a multi-faceted approach. Enlisting the support of the hospitality industry is a vital component in underage drinking prevention. Creating an environment where it is difficult for youth to purchase alcohol is possible when communities work together. All adults can be a part of the solution by refusing to purchase or provide alcohol for youth. Look for the window cling identifying responsible retailers in your neighborhood.

For more information on addressing underage and high-risk drinking or to become involved with a community coalition, contact the Baltimore County Department of Health Bureau of Behavioral Health at 410-887-3828.
