BPD: 551 TICKETS WRITTEN/17 ARRESTS MADE IN FIRST TWO WEEKS OF SCHOOL

Berkeley, California (Wednesday, August 31, 2016) - The Berkeley Police Department (BPD) has long recognized that with the return of its University of California community members, comes an increase in the number of alcohol related incidents.   This year was no different.  The BPD in a coordinated effort with officers from another 14 law enforcement agencies wrote a total of 551 alcohol related citations and made 17 in-custody arrests over the last two weekends. 

Citations were written for a number of offenses including Open Containers, Selling/Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor, Minor in Possession, and Possession of a Fake ID for the Purposes of Purchasing Alcohol.    If cited for one of these offenses a person could face punishments which range from a fine, community service, to the loss of one's driving privileges (depending on the offense) for up to a year.  Arrests were made this year for Public Intoxication, Armed Robbery, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and Petty Theft. 

The BPD would like to thank the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control and the following agencies: Watsonville PD, University of California PD, Alameda County Sheriff's Office, Folsom PD, Richmond PD, Sacramento PD (both the ABC Unit and the Entertainment team), Nevada County Sheriff's Office, Placerville PD, Central Marin Police Authority, Rohnert Park DPS, Fresno PD, San Rafael PD, and the Stockton PD for their participation. All of the participating agencies did so under a grant provided by the California Alcohol Beverage Control Board. 

The Berkeley Police would like to remind students to obey the law and for those old enough to drink, please do so responsibly.  Please have a safe and productive school year.
