Enforcement

The Enforcement Division of ATC covers the entire State of Louisiana and proactively enforces all alcohol and tobacco laws as well as criminal laws. The Enforcement Agents ensure the lawful compliance of the approximately 12,000 alcohol and 7,000 tobacco outlets situated in Louisiana.


 

Cops In Shops
The Cops in Shops program is geared toward complaint investigation, enforcement operations, festivals and compliance checks.

 

Project FOCUS
Fighting Off-Campus Underage Sales targets 10 university centered areas around Louisiana. It utilizes a threefold strategy of enforcement, education, and public awareness to reduce the underage drinking problem. Elements include more compliance checks of alcohol retailers, expanded agent presence at community events and distribution of alcohol awareness literature.

 

Compliance Checks
Compliance checks are unannounced visits to establishments by two undercover agents and a trained, underaged operative. The operative will enter the establishment and attempt an illegal purchase to determine compliance with alcohol and tobacco laws.

 

Agent Presence
ATC strives to maintain a visible presence at retailers through inspections and observations. During inspections, agents present themselves in uniform to complete a checklist of qualifications of the licensed establishment. Observations are done undercover in attempts to observe instances of illegal sales to underage youth.
