Part of that initiative involved hiring police officers to "patrol". Since they weren't really a city yet, they couldn't really have a police force, so they had a security patrol. Since they really didn't have any authority, they tried to be "hard asses" and run off anyone they considered "undesirable". They patrolled most public places - shopping centers, parks, etc.
The "undesirables" included anyone under the age of 35, any pedestrian, anyone not wearing expensive clothing or anyone not driving a Cadillac or equivalent. God forbid you have a skate board or a bicycle.
