Twilight Concert Series Safety
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 26, 2014
Contact: Jay Moroso, Lieutenant
The Twilight Concert Series starts its 30th season on July 10th from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the Santa Monica Pier. The series will run every Thursday night for 10 weeks with the last performance occurring on September 11. Throughout the 30 year series the event has grown in popularity with regard to the number of participants who have come to watch the bands and enjoy the music.
The Santa Monica Police Department is committed to ensuring the safety of everyone that participates in the event. We would like everyone to enjoy the event and have a good time but we would also like to remind everyone attending, that alcohol, glass bottles, and smoking are not permitted on the beach. The laws governing the beach and Pier will be enforced. As a result of the increase in popularity and attendance to the event and our commitment to public safety, the Santa Monica Police Department will be supplementing our police coverage of the concert series with additional personnel. This supplementation will include the presence of some Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies, who will be teamed up with a Santa Monica Police Officer. They will be deployed to keep the peace and ensure that participants are not creating an environment that would compromise the safety of the event.
