At least one person was happy that New Years Eve was “like any typical night.”
Oceanside RCMP Staff Sgt. Brian Hunter said Dec. 31 police received no additional calls for service related to New Years festivities.
“It was like any typical night,” Hunter told The NEWS on Friday. “Everyone behaved, we had extra members working but they weren’t really required.”
Hunter said road blocks were set up, but most people had a designated driver.
No DUIs were issued.
“It was fantastic,” he said. “This was my seventh New Year’s Eve here and it has always been a family-orientated night with very few issues to deal with.”
In line with New Years Eve, Hunter said the rest of the holiday season was low key for crime.
“Our calls for service didn’t spike through the holiday season,” he said. “I’m really pleased with the community.”
