From Sheriff's Captain Theresa Adams-Hydar:
Since all of the improvements have been made to Moonlight Beach, Encinitas beaches have become the destination location for north county beach- goers which increases the daytime population greatly. During the summer months, Lifeguard staffing is increased, but Sheriff's staffing has historically stayed the same despite the increased calls for service from beach goers and Lifeguards calling for assistance.Sounds like we'll be seeing more cooler checks at Beacon's Beach.
It is my intention to remedy this issue with the deployment of a dedicated, two-man beach team. I would use a current rover position already contracted for and pair them with the newly contracted unit. During the summer months this team would be assigned to the beaches for both reactive and proactive policing. They would work closely with the Lifeguards and identity [sic] problem areas, using the COPPS philosophy to affect changes.
