Increased enforcement by SLO police nets several arrests, citations

San Luis Obispo police handed out several citations on the first night of increased enforcement that coincides with Cal Poly's move-in and Week of Welcome activities.

The citations include:
Minor in possession - 12
Open container - 4
Urinating in public - 5
Drunk in public - 1
Noise violation - 1
DUI - 2

Police say two people were also taken to the emergency room for severe intoxication.

Back in August, the San Luis Obispo City Council voted to include this week in the Safety Enhancement Zone. During times the Safety Enhancement Zones are enforced, fines for open container, urinating in public, noise violations, unruly gatherings, and dangerous and deadly weapons are doubled.

The San Luis Obispo Police Department says it will have a fully staffed deployment for WOW and the first two weekends of school.

Citations on move-in day in 2012:
Minor in possession - 38
Open container - 7
Urinating in public - 0
Drunk in public - 5
Noise violation - 20
DUI - 0

Citations on move-in day in 2011:
Minor in possession - 3
Open container - 4
Urinating in public - 0
Drunk in public - 1
Noise violation - 43
DUI - 0
