Tobacco Retail Monitoring Program

Published on Oct 2, 2015

The Yolo County District Attorney's Office, in collaboration with the Yolo County Department of Health Services and the Yolo County Anti-Tobacco Youth Coalition, form the Tobacco Retail Monitoring Program. Our goal is to decrease the illegal sale rate of tobacco to minors in Davis, California, Yolo County, and now in Woodland, California.

We provide consistent enforcement of tobacco control laws by entering into businesses which sell tobacco with an undercover DA investigator and an undercover teen decoy who attempts to purchase tobacco. If the clerk sells to the minor the DA investigator gives the clerk a citation and the business is fined by the county and banned from selling tobacco to the public for a period of time.

Check out the video and find out how teens in our community are standing up against underage tobacco sales.
