Four people were arrested and 85 were cited for 109 alcohol-related violations by Cal Poly’s University Police Department as part of a stepped-up enforcement plan at the start of this school year.
During Week of Welcome and the first full week of fall classes, university police held four special operations to enforce alcohol-related and party laws. Police also checked for fake IDs at stores and bars.
The increased police presence is the result of a new agreement between Cal Poly and the San Luis Obispo Police Department and a $29,000 yearlong grant from California’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to be used for more patrols, special operations and training.
The university-city agreement gives university police authority to issue citations within a mile from campus for alcohol, noise, large parties and other violations.
