A three-day weekend will typically mean a busier time for police in Ithaca.

This weekend is the first full weekend with students back in town for the academic year.

Cornell Police Chief Kathy Zoner says they’ll be out looking for quality of life violations, like loud parties and public intoxication. She says they’ll work hand-in-hand with Ithaca Police.

“If we have a high level of citations, and the message isn’t sinking in, we’re out longer and further into the semester,” Zoner said. “If we see that people are getting the message, certainly we want to make sure we are directing our resources where they are best needed.”

Zoner made the comments during a Thursday night event designed to improve relations between Cornell students and permanent Ithaca residents living in areas such as Collegetown.
