The Long Beach Police Department's Vice Investigations Section, in cooperation with investigators from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), conducted an “ABC IMPACT Inspection” operation on Second Street in the Belmont Shore area of Long Beach, on May 4, 2015.

“ABC IMPACT Inspection” operations target ABC licensed establishments that sell alcohol, such as restaurants, bars, liquor stores, convenience stores, and grocery stores. The purpose of the inspection is to assess a business’ compliance with current ABC laws and educate employees regarding any non-compliance issues.

During the course of the operation, 37 establishments were visited and inspected. Business owners and employees were advised regarding any ABC laws violated.  Though several warnings were given for violations such as missing signage, no citations were issued.

The Long Beach Police Department was pleased to see so many establishments in compliance with ABC laws and will continue to enforce ABC laws at all establishments throughout the city.

Anyone wishing to report illegal behavior related to the unlawful sale of alcohol or ABC law violations, should contact the Vice Investigations Section at (562) 570-7219. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or text TIPLA plus your tip to 274637 (CRIMES), or visit www.LACrimeStoppers.org.
