Hamilton Police Increase Presence for St. Patrick’s Day
Hamilton Police are reminding St. Patrick’s Day revellers to stay safe and celebrate responsibly. For those that don’t, there could be a dent in their pot of gold, with hefty fines for excessive noise or public intoxication.
Hamilton Police Service, McMaster University Security, and City of Hamilton By-Law are teaming up to ensure everyone is safely enjoying the festivities in and around McMaster’s campus. Hamilton police will have an increased presence in the community over the weekend to discourage any disruptive party-goers. There will be a zero tolerance approach to large parties or open alcohol on the streets.
McMaster University will also be communicating with students to remind them to celebrate safely and be respectful of neighbours.
Members of the public are encouraged to contact police in the event of disruptive behavior caused by excessive partying. For police emergencies, call 911. Any non-emergencies can be reported at 905-549-4925. To provide information anonymously, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or submit anonymous tips online at http://www.crimestoppershamilton.com
Hamilton Police are committed to working together to make this a safe and enjoyable weekend for everyone.
