The Coachella Valley is home to several huge music festivals each year. In addition to the weekly concerts at our many venues, we see both the Coachella Music and Arts Festival and Stagecoach every year. Both festivals bring in tens of thousands of people. Because of the fun, party atmosphere, local law enforcement team up with other agencies to crack down on perceived crimes. They employ undercover operations while also utilizing uniformed officers at these music festivals.
At both Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals, the officers are seeking drug offenders and underage drinking. The cops instruct the staff at the Music Festivals on how to spot fake IDs and underage drinkers. The Music Festival staff are then instructed on how to detain the alleged offender and alert law enforcement.
