Indiana Excise Police: Bars, eateries complying with closure order

Back To Front Page


The Indiana State Excise Police (ISEP) is reporting that the state's bars, nightclubs, and sit-down dining establishments are overwhelmingly in compliance with Gov. Eric Holcomb's executive closure order, issued on March 23.

Although "a large number of complaints" has been made regarding bars and restaurants, on investigation officers have subsequently "deemed the complaint unfounded, meaning the bar/restaurant was not open for in-person dining," ISEP Director of Communications Lindsay Hyer told the Chesterton Tribune after deadline on Thursday. "ISEP is working with the bar and restaurant owners to educate them on Gov. Holcomb's executive order related to in-person dining through verbal orders before issuing a citation. A vast majority of those bars and restaurants are now complying with Gov. Holcomb's order."

As of Wednesday, April 1, there were 18 open and active investigations of bars and restaurants, while a single notice of violation has been issued, to a bar in St. Joseph County, Hyer added.
