Information About the New Misdemeanor Citations

Officers will now be issued a new Misdemeanor Citation Book to aid police in addressing quality of life violations such as loud noise, litter, public drinking. This is in response to concerns voiced by many members of the community over the prevalence of so-called “minor infractions” that negatively impact the quality of life in our neighborhoods.This is not an entirely new procedure; officers have always had the option to issue citations, but this new booklet streamlines and updates an existing process that was underutilized.
