Recently the ILCC has brought in local inspectors/police/etc. for checking minor violations. Are there any guidelines for those doing the checking?

Additionally, on-premise retailers have informed distributors that the sheriff’s department comes in on Friday and Saturday evenings in full uniform to do the inspections. This has caused patrons to leave the location, is there anything that can be done to have them do inspections at a different time?

Licensees are subject to inspection during license hours.  Police are changing their policy to go into bars in plain clothes but it is not a policy of the ILCC.  During training the ILCC is advising the police departments that they should go in the bar in plain clothes.
