Questions, concerns, and information regarding this matter should be addressed to the Sex Assault Unit at 202-727-3700.”
“While on patrol in the 600 block of Edgewood St NE, offices made conduct with several subjects. Upon further investigation, officers recovered a TEC9 with a high capacity magazine, a Glock40 with a high capacity magazine and resulted in three arrests. Great work by the officers of the Fifth District!”
“To Whom it may concern and those who would like clarification on our new sign:
For 21-23 year olds, the Dew Drop Inn has to be extra vigilant, because 21-23 yr olds are more likely to show up at the bar knowing that someone in their group has a fake ID. Our policy is not to “ban” 21-23 year olds, but to be extra vigilant regarding their ID’s.
This is a bigger issue for alcohol establishments in college neighborhoods, because only about 25% of “college students” are of the legal drinking age (the Senior class); so most undergraduates are not old enough to be in bars. For this reason, being a “college bar” is not a working business model, even near college campuses.
And with high-quality printers and graphics, there is currently no fool-proof way of determining whether ID’s are fake or legitimate. ABRA (DC’s alcohol regulating agency) acknowledges that there are no scanners on the market that can 100% detect fake ID’s. Instead, security staff is supposed to be able to identify fake ID’s by knowing more than 50 state’s ever-updated ID’s, plus the US territories’, as well as foreign passports.
To further complicate the issue, when there is a breach, the Bar is penalized, not the adult with the fake ID (assuming that the person is over 18 yrs old). If an under-aged patron is found inside the bar with a high quality fake ID, then often both the Bar and the bartender are fined, while the under-aged adult with the fake ID is often simply escorted out of the establishment and sent on their way. So naturally this adds to the allure of using a fake ID – the worst that is likely to happen is that your ID gets confiscated.
So, being in a college neighborhood, Dew Drop Inn’s sign “welcoming” 24 yr olds, is our way of saying that we will be scrutinizing all of our younger patron’s ID’s very closely, and that we hope to err on the side of caution.”
“Was at Dew Drop Inn tonight [Saturday] and they were putting up lots of new signs saying they are only a 24+ establishment now. We asked security and bartenders what the change was about and everyone said they are “not authorized” to speak about what happened “last night.”
