Additional Officers Assigned to Downtown & Promenade
Source: Santa Barbara Police Department
With recent COVID restrictions lifting, The Santa Barbara Police Department is anticipating an increase in activity in the downtown corridor and State Street Promenade. Starting immediately, there will be additional Officers directly assigned to these areas on an indefinite basis. These Officers will be assigned to foot patrol, bicycle patrol, and/or motorcycle patrol to improve safety for all community members.
Officers will be on duty in the downtown corridor 7 days a week, between the hours of 10:00am – 8:00pm Sunday through Tuesday, and 10:00am – 3:00am Wednesday through Saturday. Officers assigned to work during the evening hours will be primarily responsible for handling night life issues that may stem from the re-opening of many bars, nightclubs, and restaurants.
Public safety is our number one goal, we want everyone to enjoy Downtown and the Promenade, now that most pandemic restrictions have been lifted and a sense of normalcy is returning to our community.
