Oxford Police Department

First game weekend…

Local law enforcement agencies reported a busy but typical game day weekend with more than 55 arrests in the city of Oxford and the University of Mississippi combined.

OPD had four mounted police officers controlling crowds on the Square during the game weekend, along with eight officers who were on foot patrol. Around midnight, those officers were also joined by several patrol officers coming to help as the bars closed and masses of party-goers walked out onto the Square. (September 8, 2010, Page 2)
