To Avoid Party Fouls, South Coast Authorities Ask Hosts To Register Their Revelry

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office now has a new "Party Registration Program" in Isla Vista.

The program is voluntary, and is intended to allow the host to regulate their party and fix any issues without police coming first.

It will also help residents avoid fines associated with loud music citations and reduce nuisance parties in Isla Vista.

The department's aim is for someone who is going to be holding a party to register a point of contact, who will then have 20 minutes to shut down a party in case of a complaint.
