IF AN ALCOHOL OR DRUG RELATED ARREST IS MADE OR A CITATION IS WRITTEN, THE CALLER IS ELIGIBLE FOR A $50.00 REWARD.

The caller must indicate that they are making a Keg Stopper call and request they be given an incident number or Keg Stopper identification number. The only personal information the caller has to give is their birth date.

When a Keg Stopper call is received, deputies will be sent to the location indicated by the caller.

If an alcohol or drug related arrest is made or a citation is written, the caller is eligible for a $50.00 reward.

To receive the reward the caller must provide the incident number or Keg Stopper identification number and the callers birth date. No other information is required.

History and Support:

Keg Stoppers was initially started in the Selah School District. East Valley, Naches Valley and West Valley schools have now joined the program. A contribution of $500.00 was made by each of the schools involved in the program. These contribution were put into separate accounts for each school to be used strictly to pay Keg Stoppers Rewards.

The responsibility of fund raising to maintain the Keg Stoppers reward accounts will be that of each school involved in the program.
