The Bureau of Tobacco and Chronic Disease has been partnering with the Attorney General’s Office for many years utilizing teens to do undercover compliance checks on tobacco retailers. Our intent with STAND and the website was always to make it a one-stop shop for all things in tobacco prevention. We are pleased to announce our newest update incorporating the Counter Strike initiative.
The Counter Strike section: standaz.com/counter-strike
Case Files: standaz.com/counter-strike/case-files/
Case Files takes our efforts to a new level as we have filmed actual failed inspections by real undercover teens in real locations. We have two :60 profile videos up as well as a :30 teaser. In addition, we have a :15 promo ad in conjunction w/digital web banners as well as a radio spot.
Retailer Map: standaz.com/counter-strike/retailer-map
The retailer map is our effort to showcase those tobacco retailers that have failed a tobacco inspection. You can do a search via county and see:
The name of retailer including the address and the date of the failed inspection. The map will be updated regularly, so check back often!
Recruitment: We are always looking for new recruits. If you have any youth interested in the program, please send them to CounterStrike@azag.gov for more information.
Tobacco Violation Complaint: azag.gov/complaints/tobacco
We also have the above link if you would like to report a tobacco violation directly the AGO.
