"We're having a lot of problems with large social gatherings happening overnight, mischief and crime. Please help us curb this so our first responders can focus on what's important at this time. Our officers are going to be reasonable about these rules, but we do have to make sure that everyone is complying. If we see you out and about over and over, we're going to stop you and question you. Let's be safe and keep our community healthy."
