STATE-NEWSRICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ An agent with the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control’s Bureau of Law Enforcement has been installed as the president of the National Liquor Law Enforcement Association. Special Agent in Charge Joseph Cannon was sworn in earlier this month during the association’s annual convention. The association is made up of more than 1,100 sworn and non-sworn state, provincial, county, municipal and campus enforcement personnel tasked with enforcing liquor laws in the United States and Canada. The 16-year-old organization collects and disseminates research data, offers training to enhance the standards of liquor law enforcement, advises lawmakers on alcohol-related policy and provides technical assistance about best practices and policy development to law enforcement agencies. Cannon has been with Virginia ABC for more than 14 years, working in Chesapeake, Lynchburg and Richmond.
