Event: College Area Public Safety Meeting (CARPUS)

« return to October, 2014

Date: Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Location: College Avenue Baptist Church CEC Bldg. Room 302

Address: 4747 College Avenue

Description: At tomorrow night's CARPUS meeting, the SDPD Permitting Authority which makes recommendations on alcohol permits will be presenting. It's a very important meeting because the granting of alcohol licenses greatly impacts the College Area.

The census tracts in and around the College Area (including south of El Cajon Blvd.) have significantly higher rates than the City average for Alcohol Arrests, Violent Crimes, or both. This is important to bring to SDPD attention, for them to consider when making recommendations on alcohol permits in the College Area.

Another very important issue that will be raised at this meeting is a change to Police Department policy, where SDPD will no longer ticket cars parked on the grass. This is a problem that the community has been fighting for many years, and the policy change has serious impacts on the College Area.

Come to the meeting and let your voice be heard!
