Newport Beach police are out in force Monday, vowing to crack down on partygoers who get out of hand.

Under a new law, property owners, party hosts and tenants can be fined up to $3,000 for engaging in loud or unruly conduct.

Newport Beach police will be teaming up with CHP officers and the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

Last year, police arrested 107 people and handed out more than 330 citations.
