Internet cafe posterAlthough the ban on illegal gambling machines is expected to be enforced locally, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is taking the offensive distributing the following handout and poster to the Florida Sheriff’s Association, Florida Police Chiefs Association, the Association of Florida Police Attorneys and Florida State Attorney’s Offices. 

The posters warn that anyone who operates or visits Internet cafes and adult arcades will be subject to criminal prosecution.
