Plainclothes Cop Walking Pacific Avenue

A plainclothes police officer was walking up Pacific Avenue on September 23rd. The plainclothes officer and the officer in uniform spent several minutes talking to another individual outside the Tampico near the Metro Center. Both the plainclothes police officer and the uniformed cop took photos of me after I took their photos.

The two cops then met up with Sergeant Harms and Debbie, a person who is concerned about the cleanliness of downtown Santa Cruz and inappropriate behavior. Two people were moved along by the police for the inappropriate act of sitting on the sidewalk too close to the downtown shopping directory.
