Education and Community Outreach Office

As a "control jurisdiction" DLC facilitates the alcohol wholesale distribution to over 900 licensed establishments in the county.
Along with the sale and distribution of a controlled substance comes a responsibility to educate and support the establishments served.
The Community Outreach Office consults with and assesses establishments to keep businesses on track.
Helping communities flourish through the promotion of alcohol laws, public awareness and responsible hospitality practices are priorities.
