Honoring the Work of LAPD Alcoholic Beverage Control
Posted by Councilmember Englander on February 02, 2018 at 3:06 PM
This week I was proud to honor a team of public servants dedicated to upholding public safety, addressing alcohol-related issues, the teaching of programs and classes that benefit our community, and continually going above and beyond the call of duty.
The LAPD Operation Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Unit received the highest award from the CA Department of ABC: The Director’s Award for Outstanding Performance.
Their work consists of managing over 6000 ABC licenses within 21 geographic divisions and they successfully met and surpassed the goals outlined in each grant category with over 100% fulfillment.
The LAPD Operation ABC Unit made over 385 ABC related arrests, conducted 139 operations, taught nearly 6000 students, held over 165 Standardized Training for Alcohol Retailers and in addition, the unit gave over 400 officers ABC roll call training.
This work saves lives. By educating youth about the dangers of drinking and driving, intervening to stop irresponsible vendors, and taking impaired drivers off the road, these officers have worked to prevent some of the most tragic outcomes for both those who broke the law and bystanders who may have been impacted.
I wish to the LAPD Operation ABC Unit Officers, Sgt II Lifernando Garcia, Sgt II Craig Nollner, and Reserve Officer Steve Moore.
A special thank you to the CA Department of ABC Director Jacob Appelsmith, Deputy Chief Kathleen Barnes, and Agent Benjamin De La Rosa as well as LAPD Assistant Chief Beatrice Girmala for attending today’s presentation and presenting such a significant and incredible award to the best officers in the Country.
