San Francisco Police Department Policy on

New Year's Eve Alcohol Consumption 



 


 

 


 

 

 

 


During New Year’s Eve and the hours following, the San Francisco Police Department will strictly enforce the provisions of Section 21 of the Municipal Police Code for the public consumption of alcohol. Containers of alcohol and fireworks will be confiscated.  Anyone who is drunk, or who operates a motor vehicle while intoxicated, will be arrested.

 

There will be a significant police presence, and the San Francisco Police Department will be enforcing zero-tolerance policy regarding public drinking and any other criminal activity.  Discharging firearms to celebrate is both unlawful and dangerous as bullets fired into the air could strike someone upon return to the ground.

 

There are no planned street closures.
