Kentucky officials say a crackdown on underage drinking has resulted in dozens of citations being handed out.

The Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control's "Cops in Shops" program has given 154 alcohol-related citations since the effort started August 29. A total of 94 underage possession citations have been issued.

Other charges include possession of a forged instrument and assisting a minor to purchase alcohol.

ABC says it has also stepped up its presence at tailgating events to reduce illegal alcohol use.
