San Antonio Council has created a special team of police officers to patrol the busiest parts of the town at night during the busy summer months.
The Special Summer Night Team or ‘ENEV’ will have 7 agents, 2 officers and a dog with a handler and will work on a shift system that allows 4 to patrol every night from 1 May to 30 September. These agents will be additional to the existing local police force.
The team will operate from 9pm-6am from 1 May to 31 August then 10pm-6.30am in September. Their main job will be to enforce local laws with regards to coexistence, noise control, illegal street sellers, bar closing times and security.
The creation of this new group is in direct response to the proposals made by residents and business groups whilst developing San Antonio’s new strategic plan.
