As high school students prepare for graduation or continue to celebrate, police departments in the Imperial Valley are prepared to keep a close eye on the celebrants.
Officials at all local departments but one said although they usually don't have any serious incidents in their cities after graduations, they add patrol units to make sure celebrations don't get out of hand.
In Calexico, police Lt. Jim Neujahr said the one problem the department seems to have to deal with is fights.
"For some reason, I guess because it's the last day of school and they feel free, they get into fights to start off the summer," said Neujahr.
He said the fights seem to happen every graduation night.
In Brawley, police Lt. John Myers said the department plans to have about eight bicycle patrol units to help regulate the parties that go on after graduation. Myers said the parties usually involve underage drinkers, so police simply break up the affairs.
