The following are preliminary statistics on police service calls handled by the State College and Penn State University Police Departments from noon on Friday, February 28th through noon on Sunday, March 1st. Total crimes reported, arrests, and calls for service were consistent with 2019. These numbers continue to remain substantially lower than the height of the State Patty’s Day event in 2011.
State College Police appreciate the outstanding cooperation received by our town and gown partners in helping reduce the impact this event has on our community. We would also like to thank our law enforcement partners to include the Penn State Police, Liquor Control Enforcement, and the Centre Region DUI Task Force for their assistance this past weekend.
