Enforcement Division

Law enforcement badge


The Enforcement Division is tasked with ensuring compliance with the Oklahoma Alcoholic Beverage Control Act. This is accomplished through regular inspections of all licensed entities and investigations of complaints alleging law violations. Priority enforcement is directed toward the elimination of access to alcoholic beverages and tobacco products to under age persons. It is the intent of the Enforcement Division to investigate all complaints concerning these types of violations through cooperative efforts with all state, county, and municipal law enforcement agencies.

To facilitate enforcement efforts the State has been divided into three (3) districts: Oklahoma City, McAlester, and Tulsa. 

The agency's Public Information Officer is Captain Brent Fairchild who is also the ABLE Commission liaison and special events coordinator.

The Educational, Compliance, and Investigation unit is supervised by Assistant Director Maureen Shanta. Assistant Director Shanta supervises Synar and FDA tobacco compliance and the agencies Two Much Too Lose (2M2L) Program and all ABLE commission grants. This unit is also assigned any special investigations.
