Spring Break Safety Meeting on Pensacola Beach
February 4, 2020
Pensacola Beach, Fla. – January 14, 2020 – The Santa Rosa Island Authority (SRIA) announces a public meeting, hosted by the Pensacola Beach Advocates (PBA) group, to discuss 2020 spring break safety and law enforcement plans on Tuesday, Feb. 4, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Beach Community Church on Pensacola Beach.
The goal of the meeting is to reduce incidents of underage drinking, public intoxication, blocked roadways and other issues associated with spring break crowds.
“We want to ensure that our beach remains pristine and that everyone has a great time, stays safe and respects the beach community,” said James Crittenden, president of the Pensacola Beach Advocates.
The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office will have a representative available to discuss how the department plans to enforce existing regulations to keep Pensacola Beach safe and family-friendly.
The SRIA hopes that this meeting will provide an outlet for property and rental management representatives to discuss proactive measures they can take to reduce incidents and crowd issues.
The purpose of the PBA is to educate and inform leaseholders, public officials and other interested parties about matters affecting the controlled development of the island, and to protect the public lands of Pensacola Beach for the benefit of its leaseholders and for all citizens of Escambia County and beyond.

Pensacola Beach is owned by Escambia County, Fla., and is under the direction of the Santa Rosa Island Authority (SRIA). The SRIA was created by the Florida legislature in 1947 under Chapter 24500. The SRIA does not receive tax support from the taxpayers of the county. It is fully funded from lease fees collected from business and residences on the beach. The Island Authority board is made up of six members; five are named by members of the Escambia County Board of Commissioners whose term is the same as the commissioner who appointed them. Registered voters on Pensacola Beach elect the sixth member. The elected member’s term is two years.
