Alcoholic Beverage Control: Enforcement Techniques for Law Enforcement
Course Overview

This two-day course will assist municipal police officers who are assigned Alcoholic Beverage Control administrative investigations and/or are responsible for background investigations for the municipal issuing authority alcoholic beverage licensing process, with a working knowledge of the law, applicable administrative regulations and current investigative techniques. Participants will "walk through" a licensing background investigation to determine what is required by the municipal issuing authority and the investigative techniques that can be employed. Problems the issuing authority may encounter with a licensee during annual license renewal process or a disciplinary hearing will be discussed. Also covered are suggested strategies for appeals to the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control and emergent hearings for stays or extension of the license and procedures to sell alcoholic beverages. All participants will receive extensive course materials, including applicable laws, administrative regulations, case law, ABC forms, and manuals.
