With classes starting at Arizona State University next week, many students are back on campus and may be ready to party on Mill Ave. this weekend.
ASU police will be there as well.
“Mill Avenue is handled by Tempe police,” said ASU Assistant Police Chief Jim Hardina. “However, we’re working with them on a DUI task force this weekend. Next weekend, we are actually having an officer assigned to their alcohol enforcement detail.”
Hardina said that ASU police want students to have a good time, but they also want to keep underage people out of bars and to make sure those who are out are not drinking too much.
Hardina said there are several things that students can do to keep themselves safe while they’re out on the town.
“Don’t be paranoid, but use common sense,” he said. “If you are aware of your surroundings, use the buddy system, let people know what you’re doing and where you’re going and you can really increase your safety.”
Once school starts next week, ASU police officers will be out enforcing traffic, pedestrian and bike laws around the Tempe campus.
“The first week will be warnings and education,” said Hardina. “We just want to educate the new students on what the laws are in Arizona. Starting the second week of school, and on throughout the semester, it will be enforcement of the pedestrian and bike violations.”
