Tobacco Compliance Check, Watford City


Recently the Watford City Police Department in partnership with Upper Missouri Health District, North Dakota Department of Health and McKenzie County School District completed their first ever Tobacco Compliance Check at the 16 different tobacco sale locations within the City of Watford City. With the sharp increase of youth tobacco and nicotine use, WCPD has partnered with community stakeholders to prevent tobacco and nicotine access to our younger generation.

WCPD would like to thank the following businesses for checking the IDs of our minors and refusing to sell Tobacco or Nicotine products.

- American Legion Bar

- Holiday Gas Station

- Cash Wise Foods

- Cash Wise Liquor

- Corner Post Gas Station

- Family Dollar (Main Street)

- Family Dollar (4th Ave Ne)

- Cenex

- One Stop Gas Station

- Jack and Jill Grocery Store

- Tobacco Depot

- Fox Hills Golf Course

- City Bar

-Twist Convenience Store

The two establishments that sold tobacco or a nicotine product to a minor were Long X Bottle Shop and Kum and Go Gas Station. These businesses were warned instead of being cited and trained on North Dakota Tobacco Laws.

WCPD will continue with these Tobacco Compliance Checks in the future, using grant funding provided by the Upper Missouri Health District and North Dakota Department of Health.

All media inquiries can be directed to WCPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Jeffrey Jensen by calling 701-842-2280 or via email at [email protected]
