Boaters visiting San Diego can now reserve a slip even before dropping anchor and setting foot on land. The San Diego Harbor Police Department has launched an online service as a convenience for recreational boaters and visitors to San Diego Bay. Previously, the only ways to request a slip were to initially dock and reserve in-person or to place a call, while availability was first-come, first served.
Public safety is everyone’s responsibility. Have fun, but be vigilant, too. If you see something – something you know is out of place, or someone’s behavior doesn’t seem quite right – say something! Report suspicious activity to a uniformed officer or call 911. Be prepared to describe:
- Who or what you saw
- When you saw it
- Where it occurred
- Why it’s suspicious
