It's unclear how this request for (presumably evening) downtown patrols can be reconciled with the Sheriff's Department preference for daytime beach patrols.
Please come to the City Council Meetingat City Hall, at***Learn what happened when a Special 2 Deputy Patrol canvased the downtown area this summer and***Show your support when the ECC requests City Council make this patrol permanentThe ECC has been asking City Council to take action to eliminate the ongoing problems downtown. We're thankful that in July they assigned two deputies to patrol downtown Encinitas on foot from July 24 - September 12, 2015.(See Report and Analysis that will be presented to City Council)ECC members recently emailed that they noticed that things improved while the deputies were downtown but quickly went back to the way they were as soon as the patrol ended. What have you noticed?Please send us an email and share your experiences since. The Sheriff, Code Enforcement, and the Council members are influenced when citizens speak up!It would also be helpful for you to send an email to City Council at firstname.lastname@example.org You can tell them of your experiences, say you appreciate the fact that they assigned a Special 2 Deputy Patrol and ask them to make it permanent.Your presence at the upcoming meeting is vital. It will show the City Council two things: (1) ECC members appreciated the recent patrol and (2) We request the Patrol be assigned on a permanent basis as we already see problems escalating.
