Police bar-hopping looking for violations

As part of its efforts to curb alcohol-related crime and disorder during the busy back-to-school period, the Guelph Police Service will be taking part in a new provincewide liquor licence inspection and enforcement program.
Developed by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police and the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, the Community Alcohol Safety and Enforcement (CASE) program will augment the local police service’s ongoing efforts, a news release said.
“Our police service already works closely with the AGCO year round. Throughout Project Safe Semester we will be looking for such infractions as serving minors, overcrowding and permitting disorderly behaviour – things that put public safety at risk in licenced establishments,” said Guelph Police Chief Bryan Larkin in the release.

“Ensuring licensed establishments operate in a legal and safe manner is critical to creating safe environments and promoting community safety,” Larkin said in the release.
Key components of the CASE program include:
Promoting public safety and enjoyable licensed establishments for the entire community.
Heightened inspections and enforcement activities by uniform officers.
Focusing inspections and enforcement on five key areas: serving minors, intoxication, permitting disorderly behaviour, overcrowding, and after-hours service.
Ensuring reporting by police of any and all enforcement and relevant information in a timely manner to the AGCO.
Promoting accountability by all licence holders to operate in a legal and safe manner. The Guelph Police Service will continue to conduct liquor licence inspections and enforcement throughout the year to ensure compliance and safety, it said.
