The Santa Ana Police Department will be conducting a large-scale anti-cruiser enforcement operation on April 21st, Easter Sunday. It will begin at 6:00 PM and is scheduled to conclude at 2:00 AM. In years past, the City of Santa Ana has contended with large crowds, congested roadways, criminal activity; and quality of life issues that affect our residents, businesses and visitors. Road closures, lane restrictions and extra patrol officers will help the Santa Ana Police Department crack down on the annual tradition of cars cruising on Easter Sunday.
Therefore, to mitigate these issues; an increased police presence with a zero tolerance approach along with lane restrictions and road closures will be in effect in the following areas: Bristol Street from 17th Street to Callen’s Common, Main Street from 17th Street to Dyer Road, Edinger Avenue from Main Street to Raitt Street and Harbor Boulevard between Westminster Avenue and Edinger Avenue.
Minor traffic delays should be expected by anyone who does not avoid the targeted areas. We are requesting if you see cruising starting to occur or suspected criminal activity to call 714-834-4211 (or 9-1-1 if it is an emergency).
