The primary mission of ALE is the enforcement of the State Alcoholic Beverage Control laws and the Controlled Substances Act. Special attention is directed towards the possession and use of alcohol by underage persons and the prevention of violent crime due to alcohol and drug abuse.
Alcohol law enforcement officers are available to answer questions and provide information. Such agents/officers have rights to inspect establishments holding ABC permits: (1) they may inspect all parts of licensed premises, (2) they may take any enforcement action for illegal activities on the licensed premises, including but not limited to issuing criminal citations and administrative violations, and (3) they may examine your books and records.
The responsibility for complying with ABC’s laws and rules lies strictly with the permittee.
