VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - The first item on Tuesday's Virginia Beach City Council agenda is a discussion on the resort area's police staffing strategy.
WAVY.com has confirmed the agenda item stems from a college beach weekend event at the Oceanfront in April which resulted in hundreds of police calls and multiple arrests.
Beach Councilman John Uhrin said council will vote at Tuesday's meeting to strengthen enforcement laws which will allow police to better respond to large, unexpected crowds, like the one in April.
Uhrin said another proposal before council is for event promoters to pay taxes, per guest.
The agenda posted on the city's website says Police Chief James Cervera will present the proposals.
April's event, aimed at college students, was held at the Oceanfront and resulted in several stabbings, shootings, assaults and larcenies.
