What is the SNAP Program?
By an edhat reader
A group of kids from the "SNAP" Program [Santa Barbara Police Department Student Neighborhood Assistance Program Officer] came to my house this weekend during a BBQ stating we had a noise complaint. It was the early evening on a Saturday.
The explanation of a "violation" was very confusing as they weren't police officers. I was let go with a warning, even though there were 2 other louder house parties on the block they didn't visit. What is the legitimacy of this service and can they actually issue citations? There was a threat of my address being put in a system but it didn't make much sense.
