The department provided 20 personnel as part of the security detail for the Jan. 31 event and absorbed $9,391 in resource costs, said Capt. Chris Staley, bringing the total bill to $65,791.
Cal Poly and the Cal State University system spent $55,400 to provide security for the event.
The university lined up 109 officers from multiple law enforcement agencies to secure the event. University officials said a heightened police presence was necessary given past incidents of violence, arrests and injuries at other campuses where the right-wing provocateur spoke on his “Dangerous Faggot” tour.
Never miss a local story.
Yiannopoulos, who’s known for his caustic comments about liberals, feminists, Muslims, overweight people and others, recently resigned from his position as an editor at Breitbart after a video from a 2015 interview resurfaced in which he appeared to condone pedophilia.
Although Yiannopoulos publicly apologized last week, he also called the viral video post a “cynical media witch hunt” to destroy his career. He announced his intention to start an independent media company and to embark on a new campus speaking tour.
