Cracking down on nightclub violence

On Monday, the Board of Supervisors Public Safety Committee holds the first of what will be regularly scheduled hearings about The City’s efforts to crack down on nightclubs blamed for violence in San Francisco’s neighborhoods.

Board of Supervisors President David Chiu introduced legislation to hold the hearings as the board approved of empowering the Entertainment Commission to go after problem hotspots.

The commission has long said it lacked the tools necessary to tackle the problem.

The hearing is scheduled to include statistics from the commission and the Police Department regarding violence and public safety incidents associated with entertainment venues. The hearing will also identify complaints The City has received about certain venues and how the commission handled those complaints.
