Virginia ABC works to ensure that adults of legal age who choose to responsibly consume alcohol can do so in a safe environment—one that operates in compliance with the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth.
Our special agents are sworn and certified police officers, vested with statewide authority of arrest for ABC violations as well as any other Virginia criminal law violation. ABC violations investigated by special agents are reported to the Hearings, Appeals and Judicial Services Division to be scheduled for an administrative hearing.
