Police arrested 1,367 people near the Arizona State University campus in Tempe during the first three weekends of the fall semester in a campaign called "Operation Safe and Sober," according to the Phoenix New Times.
A majority of the arrests occurred in a two-mile area around ASU, the State Press reports.
Police made 5,815 stops or contacts, according to the State Press, resulting in 3,788 citations for violations. During the three weekends, 506 people were arrested for underage alcohol consumption or possession, and police responded to 129 calls about loud parties. Dozens were also busted for driving under the influence.
"The results indicate we are on the right path and continuing with the campaign in the best interest of community safety," the Tempe PD said in a news release.
