Among other things Australia’s Liquor Laws make it illegal for venues to sell alcohol to people under the age of eighteen years, or to intoxicated persons. Research has shown that there is a low level of compliance with these laws. This study surveyed the enforcement behaviour 270 rural police officers and 336 urban police officers. One of the findings was that police are more likely to enforce these laws against individuals rather than the venues that supply the alcohol.
