Plain-clothed police out in force

Undercover Victoria Police officers have been investigating high risk licensed venues to monitor if they're operating in accordance with the Liquor Control Reform Act. The Herald Sun is reporting that the taskforce trying to combat alcohol-related crime will be at "full strength" this long weekend. Official warnings and penalty notices have already been issued to some venues according to Deputy Commissioner Kieran Walshe. "Taskforce members have already expressed disappointment with the failure of some venue managers to comply with the conditions of their licenses" he said.
