  • Dept. of Alcoholic Beverage Control-Investigator

    Hey everyone!

    Just wondering if anyone on these forums is an investigator with ABC or knows anything about the job?

    -Pros and Cons
    -What their work entails
    -Any other info/opinions you think a future applicant should know

    I did a search on the forums, but couldn't find much.

    also, anyone here move to CA just to get into LE? I'm originally from Ohio, where LE jobs are pretty hard to come by. How do you like it so far compaired to "home"?

    Thanks for your time!

    The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control employs investigators in various locations throughout the State. An investigator with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control is a non-uniformed, sworn peace officer who performs the full range of peace officer duties and responsibilities in the accomplishment of his/her assignments. The work of an investigator generally consists of:

    Determining suitability for licensure of those who wish to be licensed to manufacture, transport and sell alcoholic beverages within the State; conducting investigations to detect or verify suspected violations of provisions of all Federal, State, county and city laws in and about licensed premises; locating and interviewing accused persons and witnesses and analyzing and evaluating their testimony; examining a variety of records to secure or verify information concerning suspected violations and violators; contacting and interviewing individuals and representatives of business or governmental organizations; gathering, assembling, preserving and reporting facts, statements, or affidavits and other evidence for use in legal actions; making arrests; investigating complaints; investigating the financial and moral character of applicants for alcoholic beverage licenses; appearing as a witness and arranging for the appearance of witnesses to present testimony in criminal or administrative actions; serving legal papers; interpreting and explaining the provisions of the laws, rules and regulations of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act and Business and Professions Code; cooperating, training and maintaining liaison with Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies; preparing correspondence and reports of investigations; recommending approval or denial of applications and disciplinary action to be taken; may develop program investigation policies which specifically require investigatory or law enforcement expertise.
