To minimize disruptions from the upcoming Tigerfest—Towson University's spring concert—officers will be conducting special patrols in nearby residential areas, according to a statement from police.

Officers will be stationed in the areas of Donnybrook, Kenilworth, Knollwood and Towson Manor from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. during the event, according to a statement from the Baltimore County Police Department.

Police will be on the lookout for illegal behavior from Tigerfest like assault, loud noise/music, destruction of property, disorderly conduct, indecent exposure, public urination, setting fires, sexual assaults, alcohol violations and illegal drug possession, according to the statement.

During neighborhood patrols around the 2013 Tigerfest, six people were charged with civil or criminal offenses, most involving alcohol (e.g., underage drinking, possession of fake IDs and open containers), police reported.

Police advised everyone to make positive decisions and be cognizant of surrounding neighborhoods where people may not be participating in the festivities.

Tigerfest will be April 25 and 26 at Towson University. It starts at 5:30 p.m. at Burdick Field on Friday and at 6 p.m. Saturday at SECU Arena.

Was the police public announcement just a laundry list of possible crimes or are they actually expecting to actually spot sexual assaults during their patrols? Sounds like a heck of a party TU is throwing. May as well add murders and securities fraud to the tasks of their patrols.
