SCMPD: Do's and Don'ts for Savannah St. Pat's

Posted: Updated:

The Savannah Chatham Metro Police Department has released a list of St. Pat's Do's and Don'ts leading up to the holiday.

Sgt. Edward Grant in the Special Events Office offers this advice:

DO plan ahead.

DO check out the map of the "Control Zone".  That lists all the information you need about wristbands alcohol consumption and entertainment staging areas.

DO become of a fan of SCMPD's social media.  Updates on road closures, parking and other vital information will be posted on Facebook at www.facebook.com/scmpd and www.facebook.com/savstpat and also on Twitter @scmpd and @savstpat. WSAV also has the information on our website.

DO take a photo of your children each day you are bringing them into a crowded area.  That way if the child goes missing the SCMPD will likely be better able to locate that child faster.  Nearly every child will be wearing green and the having a photo will be a huge benefit to the officers.

DO plan on where you will park if you drive. (Four ferries and two CAT buses will ferry participants from the free parking area at the Savannah Trade and Convention Center on Hutchison Island.)

DO drink/party in moderation.

DON'T bring pets into the St. Patrick's Day "Control Zone". You will be asked to take them out.

DON'T urinate in public.  You could be arrested and/or fined!

DON'T be indecent in public. You could be arrested and/or fined!

DON'T fight. You could be arrested and/or fined!

DON'T park in "No Parking" areas.  Your car will be towed.

DON'T drink and drive. You will go to jail!

DON'T drink alcohol out of the original containers.  Alcohol must be in 16 oz. "to go" cups and they are only legal north of Jones Street.
