SLO Police Distribute Door Hangers For New Campaign

Earlier this month the San Luis Obispo Police Department distributed “Avoid Party Regret” door hangers during an outreach campaign to help inform citizens about common criminal violations associated with the consumption of alcohol and hosting parties. The information on the door hanger included fine amounts and made reference to the Safety Enhancement Zone and the doubling of fines during specified time periods.

The door hanger made reference to violations of Business and Professions Code 25662 (a) Minor in Possession of Alcohol listed the fine amount at $2000.00. This $2000.00 amount is reflected in the San Luis Obispo Superior Court Bail Schedule, however, the bail amount is different than the fine amount which, for a first time violation, is $250.
