State College police are reporting that the number of incidents during State Patty’s Day weekend was comparable to last year.

“The number of calls were similar, maybe slightly less, and the same nature of calls as last year,” Lt. Bradley Smail said Sunday.

The department increased staff for this year’s event, as it has in the past, Smail said. More details will be available Monday. A total of 393 calls were received between State College police and Penn State police in 2014, with 135 of those reports of crime, according to police. There were 102 arrests made or citations issued in 2014, according to police.
