  • State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement August 12-13: 1,222 Compliance Checks, 24 Warnings

Pennsylvania State Police Liquor Control Enforcement Officers visited 1,222 licensed liquor establishments from Wednesday, August 12 through Thursday, August 13 to ensure businesses are abiding by COVID-19 mitigation requirements that include social distancing, masking, and other health and safety requirements of the liquor code.

Liquor Control Enforcement Officers issued three notices of violation and 24 warnings for failing to follow COVID-19 requirements. As mandated by the liquor code, a notice of violation precedes the issuance of an administrative citation, which is civil in nature, and is intended to provide licensed liquor establishments notification of the nature of violation(s) discovered. The investigation remains open during this period, pending review by the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement (BLCE). Because the investigation is ongoing, names of establishments issued a notice of violation will not be released at this time. Each BLCE district office posts a monthly public information release that includes details on citations issued by that office.  More information is available on the enforcement page of the state police COVID-19 portal.
