The mission of the Prince George's Board of License Commissioners is to enforce the alcohol beverage laws of the State of Maryland and to promote the education of licensees and the public, while encouraging socially responsible consumption of alcoholic beverages. We accomplish this through comprehensive inspections while bestowing trust through fair administration with transparency.  The Board of License Commissioners provides the highest level of service to the citizens of Prince George's County through strict licensing, education and partnership with county agencies which provides the upmost assistance in ensuring compliance to all alcohol beverages regulations and state laws. 


The Board of License Commissioners is proud to announce the launch of our quarterly newsletter. The Buzz provides licensees and community members with industry updates, topics of interest, and rules & regulations of the BOLC.
