No. Our law enforcement is more than equipped to handle the problem.
It's inevitable unless we beef up outreach and social services for vulnerable youth.

The jail was awfully busy on New Year's Eve

By NICK POWELL

Dozens of people in San Luis Obispo County welcomed 2013 from the cold concrete floors of jail cells and drunk-tanks. According to SLO Sheriff’s spokesperson Tony Cipolla, 31 people were booked into the county jail between the hours of 9 p.m. on Dec. 31 and 9 a.m. on Jan. 1 for a range of crimes that were “all over the place.”

For a comparison, there were just seven bookings during the same time period on the night of Dec. 17 and the following morning, the last non-holiday Monday/Tuesday.
