Entrapment in Vilvoorde?

My home town of Vilvoorde is planning on sending minors to bars and convenient stores in order to check if they would sell alcohol to youngsters under 18. I do applaud the intention to clamp down on under age drinking and alcohol abuse, but doen’t that qualify as entrapment? If I understand correctly, Belgian law qualifies the enticement to commit a felony as a crime in itself, with those involved (the minors, in this case) as criminals. Can someone please correct me if I am wrong, in the comment section?
