T in the Park

 Cops praise good behaviour of most T in the Park fans
by Denis Brown, Perthshire Advertiser

TAYSIDE Police yesterday commended the behaviour of T in the Park revellers, reporting a significant drop in crime at this year’s event. But, while most of the 85,000 music lovers attending each day kept the peace, a minority did the opposite, committing numerous minor and several serious crimes. Police are investigating four sexual assaults and the attempted murder of two 20-year-old Fife men near a path linking the main arena and campsite at 11.50pm on Sunday night. Both victims sustained abdominal wounds and are now in a serious but stable condition at Dundee’s Ninewells Hospital. Police arrested and charged three men.

Although it is not known if he was aware of the disturbing incidents, US rapper Jay-Z, a main stage headliner on Sunday, wound up his set by urging fans to “stay safe”. “I want y'all to do something for me: stay safe,” he told the huge crowd. “We wanna be able to do this over and over and over again.”

One prevalent crime was campsite thefts, with opportunistic crooks slicing open tents with blades to pilfer items inside.

PA reporters covering the event reported the familiar spectacle of numerous revellers who had over-indulged in alcohol. Event commander Chief Superintendent Craig Suttie described the policing strategy – involving 450 officers and 1600 security staff – as a significant success.

“Overall,” he said, “the atmosphere was brilliant and our planning paid dividends, with officers working in close liaison with security staff, enabling a very swift incident response. I am very encouraged by the drop in crime levels that we have experienced this year as well as the high detection rates.”

Festival director Geoff Ellis said, “It’s encouraging that the overall level of crime is down on last year and that most fans are listening to the positive messages we put out about having a safe and healthy festival.”

These comments make us proud. Securimoore Security Services did the best job possible and helped to keep law and order and a great party atmosphere at the T in the Park.
