The Reno Police Department (RPD) is vowing to keep up extra scrutiny on this year’s Santa Crawl in downtown.

The department said that it is expecting record-breaking crowds from previous years.

RPD officers will be out in force “to ensure everyone’s safety,” and the department wants “to remind the Santa Crawl participants of some of the laws and some basic safety tips if (event goers) are planning on coming downtown for the crawl.”

  • This event is for citizens who are at least 21 years of age; IDs will be checked
  • Participants wishing to drink can only do so with 2015 Santa Crawl cups
  • No alcohol will be permitted outside any of the bars or casinos
  • Don’t leave drinks unattended and have a friend watch out for your safety
  • Don’t drink and drive

According to police,

Reno PD, along with the City of Reno’s Community Safety and Services Team (CSAST), will also be enforcing queue lines outside of participating bars and nightclubs and dump buckets at the doorways for alcohol to ensure adequate security and safety for participants and citizens is met.

RPD said that it will be addressing open containers and taking crowd-control measures in order to provide public safety for the community.
