|The Crime Trend|
|Since the beach booze ban passed, many inland communities that supported it now have more alcohol-related crime. Meanwhile, the same beach communities that opposed the ban now have less alcohol-related crime.|
|Alcohol-related crime dropped 21 percent in Pacific Beach and 34 percent in Mission Beach. It grew by more than 40 percent in Lincoln Park, Mountain View, Shelltown and Skyline.|
|The shifts could represent changing community behaviors since the ban, other factors unrelated to the ban, changing police practices or more likely, some combination of all three.|
