In Santa Cruz, city leaders are considering asking hotels to help them battle rising crime.

On Tuesday, the City Council will consider a measure that would make hotel and motel guests show their ID when they check-in.

Police hope changing the rules will cut back on the number of people who come to Santa Cruz to sell drugs or participate in prostitution.
