Early Reports Show Crime Numbers Down on State Patty’s Day

Through 8 a.m. this morning, police are reporting a 45 percent drop in crime. Only 20 arrests were made all day Friday and into Saturday.

 

 

The downturn has been palpable, too. Although admittedly unscientific, I took a few laps around downtown this afternoon and saw very little commotion or destruction. There was still a fair amount of green and visibly drunk folks meandering around, but businesses and sidewalks are far less crowded than just two years ago.

Even the State College Police Department is having a little fun today…

We’ll have updated crime numbers as they are available tonight or tomorrow afternoon.
