ECU Police credit increased security for smooth tailgate

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - New security measures at Thursday night's ECU tailgate parties worked.
    
Police say not one fight broke out.

It's a response to Saturday night's fight that landed a man in serious condition. Police arrested one suspect and are now searching for a 2nd.

Thursday night, officers wrote close to 50 tickets for different charges, from underage drinking to larceny.
    
They arrested 2 people for alcohol-related crimes.
    
Officers say new equipment, like the scissor lifts, gave them an advantage. It helped them see over the crowd, but officers say it also offered a psychological advantage as fans could clearly see police were watching.

That’s 2 big wins in 1 week for the Pirates.
    
The next home game is Saturday, September 14th against Virginia Tech.
    
Campus police expect a much bigger crowd and say they'll have more officers in place.
