BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Bowling Green Police Department is laying down the law, spelling out rules and regulations for city liquor establishments.

The city is known for its bar scene, which is why police are holding a special training session for liquor establishments Tuesday night.

LEET stands for Liquor Establishment Employee Training. Police will educate staff and management of local businesses about state and local liquor laws.

Police say it's important for students, as well as businesses, to know what is legal and what is not. Police say they want to clear the air because they realize many students don't always know what the local laws are.

In the past, police have had a problem with fake IDs being used to buy alcohol.

"One of the major challenges is the fake IDs that come through. Again, we're going through a downturn right now, but last year we had a large influx of fake IDs," said Det. Scott Kleiber with the BGPD.

The most popular question at these sessions: Is it illegal to carry an open container in downtown Bowling Green?

The answer is "yes."

If you have questions, the training starts at the police department at 7 p.m.
