Licensing enforcement checks were carried out across Dedworth, Ascot and Maidenhead on Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2.
Neighbourhood Police Officers and Royal Borough staff visited licensed venues, supported by special constables, PCSOs and a police licensing officer, to carry out general checks.
The search dog visited six premises and officers took swabs to test for drug use.
On Friday, the dog detected one man with a small amount of cannabis.
He was given a £90 fixed penalty notice.
On Saturday, an operation was carried out at 11 premises to target those selling to underage drinkers.
Venues in Windsor and Maidenhead were visited and there was one incident where alcohol was sold to a 16-year-old volunteer. The investigation is ongoing.
Police licensing officer Debie Pearmain said: "We will continue to carry out high profile checks across the borough to ensure that licensed premises are a safe environment for visitors, free from drug use."
