Stamford Police Increasing Patrols at Beaches and Parks after Complaints

Stamford police are cracking down at Cummings Beach and other beaches and parks throughout the city after receiving numerous complaints about excessive drinking, drug use, loud music and unsafe driving.

According to police, they've received numerous complaints, mostly from families with children or seniors, about behavior at the park.

On Sunday, police enacted a Quality of Life Enforcement detail to curb the behavior. Police issued 38 infraction summons in six hours for things like possession of hard alcohol, possession of marijuana, creating a public disturbance, and urinating in public.

Police also enforced traffic laws in the park and issued violations for failing to obey the stop signs and using cell phones while driving.

The Quality of Life patrols will continue in all parks and beaches for the rest of the summer.
