While law enforcement is stepping up patrols once again this year for Halloween festivities in Isla Vista, their presence will be somewhat smaller than in years past.

Isla Vista used to be known for some of the largest and rowdiest Halloween parties, but the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office says fewer people have been attending over the past three years meaning fewer problems. 

Parking restrictions in the Goleta neighborhoods closest to Isla Vista go into effect Friday at 7:00 p.m. and last through Sunday. 

A noise ordinance will also be in effect through Halloween. Loud/amplified music is prohibited from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. 

While enforcement is being decreased, sheriff's office spokesperson Kelly Hoover says there will still be a strong law enforcement presence along with a large contingency plan in place, which includes having officers on standby just in case things were to get out of hand.

The sheriff's office works in conjunction with the UCSB police department and California Highway Patrol during the four-day enforcement period.
