Liquor Control Commission June Underage Compliance Report

SPRINGFIELD – In June the Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC) conducted compliance checks around the state and visited 71 businesses licensed to sell liquor.  They cited 17 licensees for violations of liquor control laws.  Seventy-six percent of the licensees visited complied with Illinois liquor laws and refused to serve underage customers.

This report is a result of ongoing undercover and cooperative law enforcement operations conducted by Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC) agents and local law enforcement officials and volunteers from high schools and colleges.  The teams randomly visit liquor stores, restaurants and bars in communities around the state to check for ongoing compliance with state laws mandating that no liquor is sold to minors under the age of 21.  ILCC agents also work with local and state law enforcement agents to focus on communities with a high incidence of underage liquor sales.

Cicero – On June 5, 2012 the ILCC along with the Secretary of State Police conducted an underage compliance detail in Cicero.  Of the 10 licensees checked, three sold to ILCC underage participants.  Those licensees were:

• Supermercado La Chiquita, 4926 W. Cermak, Cicero
