As the Labor Day weekend approaches, Chico Police want partying students to know that it's one strike and you're done.

On Monday Chico Police Chief Kirk Trostle sent out a reminder of the "one and done" policy for off-campus parties, meaning one fight, one thrown object, will shut down the party.

"One act of violence, one act of disorderly conduct, we will take strict action," Trostle said.
Not only that, but they'll tell the respective college or university of the student involved.

"A summary of their misconduct will be forwarded to Chico State or Butte College so that student judicial affairs can determine if they can take action on that student," Trostle said.

Then, it's in the hands of someone like Lisa Root with Chico State student judicial affairs.
"We take things on a case by case basis to determine if we have jurisdiction, but we certainly expect all of our students to be cooperative with both university police and local police," Root said.

Chief Trostle said under Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations, students are sometimes protected for off-campus misconduct. That's why he'd like to see it revised and broadened under the state school systems.
