Underage drinking is the target as officials launch New Jersey's annual "Cops in Shops" initiative at the Jersey Shore this weekend.

Twenty-eight towns will receive grants from the Alcoholic Beverage Control division to pay police to work undercover in liquor stores to target those under the age of 21 who try to purchase alcohol and those over 21 who buy it for minors.

Law enforcement arrested 202 people last summer and more than 10,000 since the program begin in 1996.
