Juveniles and undercover officers try to buy cigarettes, cigars, or chewing tobacco at random businesses. If the officer found a business is selling tobacco products, he wrote a citation to the store clerk.

Officers in Camp Verde and Cottonwood conducted similar investigations.

In Prescott, officers found no violations at 21 businesses. On Dec. 9, 2006, 15 officers inspected 15 stores and issued six citations.
