Worse, the park now has a dedicated officer that shadows our league players, hiding in an out of the way area (with clear lines of sight to much of the park) with binoculars. He swoops in and tickets at the drop of a hat.
This park must be in an incredibly wealthy area with a huge budget and police staff to spare. Think of the salary and benefits cost of a sheriff's deputy or police officer. A dedicated officer for this purpose means the parks have just dedicated like $75,000 in tax dollars annually to preventing a few people from drinking alcohol in a park. They must REALLY hate drinking there. Most jurisdictions are still experiencing budget problems and are looking for places to cut back, I cannot imagine allocating this amount of limited resources to what is in reality a non-problem.
