CORRECTION: FOR THE RECORD | Yesterday’s Crime Watch item about increased police enforcement at San Diego beaches over spring break incorrectly stated that fencing off or roping off areas to reserve them is not prohibited. In fact, it is prohibited. The Union- Tribune regrets the errors. (Mar. 17, 2007, B-2)
SAN DIEGO — With tens of thousands of visitors expected at San Diego city beaches over spring-break vacation, police yesterday started special enforcement activity in Pacific Beach, Mission Beach and La Jolla through April 8.
Officers will work uniformed and plainclothes assignments throughout the three-week period, Capt. Boyd Long announced.
Visitors were reminded to expect parking lots to be near capacity during the period and to expect traffic delays.
Also, alcohol can be consumed on the sand only between noon and 8 p.m., and glass is not allowed at any time.
Fencing off or roping off areas to save them is not prohibited. Fire rings cannot be used after midnight. Furniture, other than lawn chairs, on the beach or park area also is prohibited.
