This report is a result of ongoing undercover and cooperative law enforcement operations conducted by agents of the Illinois Liquor Control Commission, local law enforcement officials and underage participants recruited from high schools and colleges. The teams randomly visit liquor stores, restaurants and bars in communities around the state to check
for ongoing compliance with state laws mandating that no liquor is sold to patrons younger than 21. Commission agents also work with local and state law enforcement agents to focus on communities with a high incidence of underage liquor sales.
