Local beaches will be a popular destination during this holiday weekend.
Rochester police will have extra patrols at Ontario Beach Park. In past years, large crowds over the holiday weekend have resulted in fights at the park.
Police say in addition to keeping the peace, officers will be directing traffic, and making sure drivers are sober.
Deputy Chief La’Ron Singletary says, “Often times after the Memorial Day Holiday, we often hear about tragic accidents that occur because people have been drinking so we want people to take advantage of ride share, taxis and make sure you have a designated driver.”
