The Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) announced Tuesday that their Vice Investigations Section, in cooperation with investigators from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) conducted an “ABC IMPACT Inspection” operation throughout Long Beach on Saturday, April 18.
According to the release, ABC IMPACT Inspection operations target ABC licensed establishments who sell alcohol, such as restaurants, bars, liquor stores, convenience stores and grocery stores.
