WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI) - The primetime kickoff for the Purdue football game against Notre Dame presented a few additional challenges for police.
The late game meant patrol shifts would be more spread out, our sister station WLFI reports.
According to Purdue police, it takes more than 100 officers to patrol each gameday.
West Lafayette Captain Gary Sparger said the city spends $50,000-$80,000 each year to patrol Purdue home games.
Sparger said the late game meant there would be more intoxicate people during the day.
"We had thousands of people in the village for Breakfast Club this morning, so it's my expectation that they've had a good dose throughout the day. They will probably go in early tonight" said Sparger.
Over the years, police have worked with Purdue students to help them understand what's acceptable.
Sparger said their work with students has led to less incidents throughout the school year.
He said most of trouble has been from visitors.
