When Halloween comes around, you can bet that the populations of college cities may grow exponentially. This year, Halloween lands on a Saturday night, which means there may be a lot of costume parties and other types of celebrations over the course of the weekend. Of course, law enforcement agencies are aware of such traditions and are prepared to increase the amount of patrol in popular college towns and other cities frequented with Halloween partygoers.
Because parties are so common on Halloween nights and weekends, police officers are prepared to keep the roads and neighborhoods safe by keeping a close eye on cities, looking out for offenders of the following:
- Assault cases
- Underage drinking
In fact, some towns that have a history of dangerous Halloween evenings, such as Isla Vista located near UC Santa Barbara, have made great efforts to enforce stricter rules on Halloween evening.
On Halloween evening, you can expect Isla Vista to incorporate the following changes:
- More law enforcement officers roaming the streets
- More checkpoints
- Increased amount of security cameras
- The use of floodlights
