Our Santa Cruz Police Department is happy to report there were no incidents of violence or vandalism when an estimated 10,000 people participated in the Women’s March throughout downtown Santa Cruz on January 21.
The crowds at the family-friendly event were peaceful and energized. SCPD appreciated support and kind words for officers throughout the march.
SCPD’s goal is to ensure that the First Amendment rights of those who wish to participate peacefully in any event on public property are preserved and protected.
“We at the SCPD are here to protect everybody’s rights,” said Police Chief Vogel.
We appreciate the work of our many SCPD officers on this remarkable day.
