Police in Ithaca will have their eyes open this weekend for any sort of nuisance crime in college neighborhoods.

Quality of life patrols with Cornell and Ithaca police are an effort to crack down on loud partying and violations that increase as the end of the spring semester comes on the area’s college campuses.

Ithaca Police Officer Jamie Williamson says they’ll focus on East Hill and Collegetown neighborhoods, but also on areas of the South Hill as well, where there has been a history of quality of life issues in the past.

The patrols started last week.

The extra patrols focus on student-heavy areas of Ithaca, and are also run in the first few weeks of the college semesters in late summer.
