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.

I asked the uniformed officer if the plainclothes cop was a plainclothes cop and he replied, "He is today."

These two were told they were sitting too close to the shopping directory and subsequently moved along.

Debbie and Sergeant Harms took a walk together up Pacific Avenue. According to Debbie, it was her first time walking Pacific with Sergeant Harms, but she has taken the walk with other police officers.

It seems that keeping Santa Cruz "weird" is little more than a nice way to sell merchandise made in China at the 'buy-local' Bookshop Santa Cruz.

That would be Deb Elston of Santa Cruz Neighbors... a project with Deb Elston and Lynn Robinson.

That was before Sgt. Harms spent over 2 hours "protecting" the City Council at today's meeting.
