CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Cheyenne Frontier Days can mean fun for the whole family, especially if you’re making good decisions.

However, if you break the law, it could not only ruin your day at the park, it could ruin your life.

The Cheyenne Police Department will have it’s Mobile Command Vehicle stationed outside of CFD. This massive truck, whilst acting as a deterrent against driving under the influence and underage drinking, is also a mobile station for the Police Department. Officers can run tests, hold suspects, and process arrests in the vehicle.

Underage drinking is a very risky choice, as it can affect your life. Future colleges and employers will be able to see that in a background check, and it certainly won’t look good to a military recruiter either.

Alexandra Farkas, the Public Information Officer at CPD, says that officers will be at the park looking specifically for underage drinking by checking I.Ds and asking questions to people of interest.

And, minors would have a difficult time purchasing alcohol at the park anyways, because of the rigorous training employees are going through.

Tom Hirsig, Cheyenne Frontier Days’ CEO says they will be running STING operations at the park to test vendors. If these vendors fail to check I.Ds correctly and sell beer to a minor, they will lose their credentials and be asked to leave the park.

The Police Department also wants to remind people to never drink and drive, so if you are planning on drinking, you should also plan ahead.
