BEACH PATROL & MODIFIED VEHICLE EXHAUST ENFORCEMENT OPERATIONS PLANNED THIS WEEKEND
The Long Beach Police Department will conduct specialized Beach Patrol and Modified Exhaust Operations from May 24 through May 26, 2014, in an effort to address quality of life issues and enhance traffic enforcement in the beach areas during the Memorial Day weekend.
Additional officers will be on hand to patrol areas frequented by beach goers along major thoroughfares adjacent to the coast. “We want residents and visitors to enjoy beach activities in a safe environment,” said Long Beach Police Lt. John Kanaley, “We ask everyone to be a good neighbor and if they See Something, Say Something by calling 9-1-1.”
The increase in beach goers can impact the quality of life in nearby neighborhoods. Complaints of noise, particularly from vehicles with modified exhaust systems, also increase. Drivers are encouraged to survey their vehicles and ensure equipment is in compliance and vehicles are parked legally. Violators may be cited or towed.
Long Beach Police wish residents and visitors alike to enjoy a safe and peaceful Memorial Day weekend.
