LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – La Crosse police increased their presence on the street Labor Day weekend.
The department added officers to the downtown and campus areas, since all three schools are back in session, according to Patrol Officer Lisa Barrix.
"More officers on the street means a safer community, hopefully. Getting the message out to students that we're not gonna tolerate the large house parties," Barrix said.
Police will increase patrol in the campus area for the first few weeks of school, she added.
