Restaurants and bars will be under close watch as university and college students start the new academic year.
Police and the Alcohol Gaming Commission of Ontario are cracking down on violations with liquor licenses in Sudbury.
They will be targeting areas that pose the greatest risk to the public, said Sergeant Steve Ross, who is with the Alcohol Gaming Commission of Ontario.
"We have five issues that we deal with,” he said. “Those are service to minors, intoxication, disorderly behaviour, overcrowding and after-hours service."
Police and the AGCO will complete two, one-week blitzes starting in the fall. Establishments found in violation can face hefty fines, days of suspension or lose their license.
