Organized Crime in Bars Part II

Following up on the ground-breaking 1992 report, the Commission exposed organized crime’s continuing infiltration of New Jersey’s licensed commercial bar and tavern industry.

In a series of recommendations for systemic reform, the Commission urged more vigorous enforcement of existing laws, as well as the adoption of additional measures necessary to strengthen the system of licensure and enforcement.
