Make a complaint

Complaint Form (pdf)
Most businesses that sell alcohol obey the liquor laws and want to be good neighbors. But sometimes problems do occur.
Public safety is our first priority. If you have information on a business that is not obeying liquor laws, we want to know.  
If you have a complaint about a business that sells alcohol, please fill out a Complaint Form and return it to the nearest OLCC office. An inspector will read your report and decide what action to take.
We can enforce the liquor laws best when people with a complaint identify themselves and are willing to testify about the incident. We will also take complaints from people who want to remain anonymous or do not want to testify.
