You'll be safer if you plan to travel to the Virginia Beach oceanfront in a couple months. Officials and business owners say they want to avoid a repeat of last year's rowdy College Weekend event. So, city staffers, police and business owners plan to meet Thursday to discuss tourism-related issues. Police made nearly 150 arrests stemming from the April 2013 College Weekend event. There were also several shootings, stabbings and robberies and at least eight people were injured.
