California ABC Agents Assist Chico Police with Enforcement Halloween Weekend

CHICO – In preparation for what is traditionally a busy time for Chico police officers, the Chico Police Department called upon California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) agents and CHP Officers to assist them over the Halloween 2022 weekend.    Law enforcement officer presence was increased in the south campus and “Avenues” neighborhoods, popular as student housing.

According to the Chico Police Department, historically, the Halloween weekend is filled with large crowds, large parties, and out-of-town partygoers. To ensure uninterrupted service to the rest of the city, off-duty Chico Police Officers were required to work during the Halloween operational period that covered Friday, October 28 at 6 pm through Tuesday, November 1 at 1 am.

Chico Police Officers were assisted by the CSU Chico Police Department, California Highway Patrol, and California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control agents.

Law enforcement officers took the following enforcement throughout the city during the operational period:

  • issued 35 citations,
  • made 13 arrests for minors for in possession/open container,
  • made 24 misdemeanor arrests,
  • made 6 felony arrests,
  • and 10 DUI arrests.

“No one wants to put a damper on holiday celebrations, good times and making memories, but law enforcement officers must take public safety into account and we thank those agents and officers who worked those nights and weekend days to keep people safe,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona
