ORANGE BEACH, GULF SHORES POLICE GEAR UP FOR SPRING BREAK
By WVUA 23 Web Writer Sarah Guzman
Alabama’s coastal police departments issued warning letters about a “Zero Tolerance” policy for the spring break season.
The Gulf Shores Police Department letter stated Feb. 24 that the city is determined to preserve public safety and quality of life for its residents.
The Orange Beach Police Department letter lists prohibitions, such as sleeping in cars, jumping off balconies or digging large holes with steel shovels in beach sand.
Police in both cities are ramping up patrol in anticipation of the college spring break season, which starts March 3 and lasts through mid-April.
Each department recorded hundreds of arrests last spring break season and hope to have fewer with a “No Alcohol” policy in place this year.
