  • Liquor Enforcement and Training

    The Rockland Police Department has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the State of Maine Liquor Enforcement.

    In this MOU the Rockland Police Department has trained aggressive officers to patrol the establishments with liquor licenses and site administrative violations as needed.

    The Officers work closely with the supervisor of liquor licensing in Augusta Maine.

    These officers frequently check establishments within the city for administrative violations.

    These administrative violations are supportive to other criminal violations like under age drinking and operating under the influence.

    In addition to the MOU with Maine liquor enforcement, the Rockland Police Department participated in several special details focusing on OUI enforcement and underage drinking enforcement.
