Today we went to court to get the COR changed so my boyfriend could come home. There is a statement that reads. The defendant is prohibited from possessing or consuming alcohol or controlled substances.
We have alcohol in the home.
It would be safest to remove all alcohol from the home. If it is locked up, and he has no access, he would not be in possession, but that's risky as you could end up in an argument about whether he truly had no access. Also, not having alcohol anywhere in the house is what is best for him. Limits the temptation.

Why don't you just get rid of the alcohol until the prohibition is lifted? He runs the risk of being arrested for violation of the conditions if the alcohol is under his control even if locked up. Best to get rid of it until later when it is no longer a condition of his release or until he no longer lives with you.
Safest bet is to just remove it for the time being. But I agree that if he has no access he can't be in possession of it
