Vido Named to Head Alcoholic Beverage Control Enforcement
A new director has been named for the State Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control’s Enforcement Division. Paul Joseph Vido comes to the job after serving as Special Agent in Charge for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives out of Louisville.
Vido administered all ATF investigations and regulatory operations in Kentucky, West Virginia, and Southern Indiana. Prior to coming to Kentucky, he served in a similar role in California.
In accepting the position, Vido said, in a quote within a news release from the Governor’s office, “The director of enforcement plays a key role in keeping alcohol and tobacco products out of the hands of our children and teenagers.”
Vido replaces Ed Robinson who retired earlier this year.?
