A series of protests against police brutality were held throughout Orange County Friday, but authorities said there were no incidents or arrests.
About 600 people were drawn to a protest at 10 a.m. that started at Alicia Parkway and Aliso Creek Road in Aliso Viejo, said Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
A group of 150 to 200 met at noon at Sigler Park in Westminster and marched to City Hall without incident.
Another protest at 3 p.m. at Dana Point Harbor included some marching, but no problems were reported, Braun said.
About 250 protesters took part in an afternoon demonstration at Triangle Square in Costa Mesa, and then started marching, with no issues, said Roxi Fyad, a spokeswoman for the city’s police department.
Another protest kicked off this evening in San Clemente at the city’s community center, Braun said.
Sheriff’s officials have been averaging about 100 to 150 deputies a night helping cities in a mutual-aid agreement this week, Braun said.
“One night this week, we had about 280 deputies deployed around the county,” Braun said.
