DetailsThere were no significant incidents this afternoon on Mifflin St. and crowd numbers were down dramatically from past years. The MPD worked hard to educate people, prior to the event, about the department's concerns and expectations. The hope was for voluntary compliance. By and large that hope was realized as the vast majority of attendees obeyed laws and ordinances. There were considerably fewer citations issued. The exact number will not be determined until next week, but it is safe to say the number will be down several hundred from last year when 545 citations were issued. As the afternoon played out, many law enforcement personnel were sent home. The MPD would like to thank the Dane County Sheriff's Department for assisting with the event.
