We have a few towns that will be affected by the crackdown.

According to the Daily Freeman, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday the State Liquor Authority and the Department of Motor Vehicles are working with local law enforcement to set up a series of sweeps of places that hold liquor licenses, specifically in college towns, to make sure they’re not serving alcohol to people under 21.

Here in the Hudson Valley we have two towns that could be hit by these sweeps including New Paltz, which is home to SUNY New Paltz and Poughkeepsie which is home to Marist, Vassar and a few others.

Sweeps like this have taken place in the past including last December and May, the sweeps were successful as nearly 1,000 fake IDs were confiscated and more than 900 people were arrested trying to buy alcohol under the age of 21.

The Governor said that this round of sweeps will target bars, restaurants, liquor stores and grocery stores in the college towns.
