SAFETY AND SECURITY AT THE
OCTOBER 8-13, 2013
The safety and security of all ASLCS PDS participants is paramount.
WALKING IN THE LOCAL AREA:
It is recommended that folks travel in groups or at a minimum in twos when walking the "K" street area. The City of Sacramento has made improvements along this corridor but it is a "work in progress" and the possibility of being ask for money or being approached by people in need is unavoidable.
VISITING THE CAPITOL:
The State Capitol has security posts at every entrance (metal detectors and scanners). It will be required of all attendees and participants to be screened as they enter the Capitol. If you are going to enter the Capitol, it is recommended you do so on the North entrance ("L" street side) and be prepared to remove all items that will sound the alarm while walking through the detector. Items such as coinage, belts, watches, etc., might trigger the alarm. Hand carried items such as purses, briefcases, and bags of any sort will be put through the X-ray machine. So, the less hand carry item you have the better.
We look forward to having all participants in Sacramento, and we want you to enjoy your stay safely and securely.
