SLOPD corrects fine amount listed on door hanger

The San Luis Obispo Police Department says a fine amount listed on door hangers distributed around Cal Poly was incorrect. The hangers, titled "Avoid Party Regret", were distributed as part of an outreach campaign to inform citizens of common criminal violations involving alcohol and the Safety Enhancement Zone, which doubles the fines for many of those violations. The timing of the Safety Enhancement Zone coincides with Cal Poly's move-in and Week of Welcome activities. The door hanger listed the fine for Minor in Possession of Alcohol as $2,000. The San Luis Obispo Police Department says that amount actually reflects the bail amount. The correct fine for a first time violation for Minor in Possession of Alcohol is $250. The Police Department says the error was inadvertent.
