Cortland County police up patrols during grad season

Cortland County police up patrols during grad season

With High School graduation season in full swing, the Cortland County Sheriff’s Department is issuing a warning about serving alcohol to minors or teens drinking at parties.

Undersheriff Herb Barnhart says serving alcohol to minors would spell trouble for adults and teens alike, which means they would be slapped with a Class A misdemeanor resulting in up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

The Sheriff’s Department and Cortland City Police are teaming up starting this weekend to maintain a zero tolerance policy toward under aged drinking parties.

They’ll be on call for noise complaints and plan to hit all the hot spots for parties for the next few weeks.
