Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version Share this

 

November 25, 2009 (San Diego County)--Sheriff William D. Gore announced today a county-wide Holiday Watch Program beginning Wednesday, November 25, 2009 and continuing through Sunday, January 3, 2010. The purpose of Holiday Watch is to provide a safe, secure, crime free environment during the holiday period. The Sheriff’s Holiday Watch program will consist of both education and enforcement. A schedule and locations of enforcement actions for seatbelt laws, drunk driving stops and more is included below.

 

 

Educational activity will be led by the Sheriff’s Crime Prevention Detail. Crime prevention specialists, along with the senior volunteers, will encourage businesses and residents to be aware and alert and to immediately report suspicious activities to the Sheriff’s Communication Center (858-565-5200). Criminals often try to take advantage of those engaged in holiday activities, but following good crime prevention practices will help minimize the chances of being a victim.

 

Crime prevention specialists will be working with businesses throughout the Sheriff’s nine contract cities and the adjacent unincorporated areas to enlist their support in providing a safe environment in which to shop and recreate. Law enforcement effectiveness is enhanced by working closely with members of our community.

 

“Criminals do not take the holidays off and neither will our deputies,” explained Sheriff Gore. “Our deputies will be out in force this holiday season to protect the residents and provide a safe environment for everyone.” Enforcement will consist of directed patrols in commercial areas, undercover operations, bicycle patrols, DUI checkpoints and roving patrols.

 

Residents can expect to see extra patrols in commercial and certain residential areas. Uniformed patrols will be supported by undercover operations to enhance effectiveness. The Sheriff’s Department will work with San Diego County Probation and State Parole to identify career criminals and repeat offenders who may be in violation of their probation or parole conditions.

SDPD is making this problem worse by allowing illegal night clubs to let in people under the age of 21 this is clearly illegal in the State of California. No nightclub or bar may have people under the age of 21 inside. Decos, Satin Lounge, Belo, and Sin allow people under the age of 21 to enter yet SDPD does nothing. There is even radio ads surely PD is aware.
