The Riley County Police department is ramping up preparations for the upcoming Fake Patty’s Day.
The event, which has become somewhat of a local phenomena, takes place on Saturday, March 2 in Manhattan. RCPD Capt. Greg Steere spoke at Monday’s Riley County Commission meeting, and says they expect the event to again be more of a house party-type event.
Riley County Commission Chair John Ford says safety is a main priority.
Steere says all patrol officers will be active on March 2 and RCPD will have additional assistance from surrounding law enforcement agencies, including the Kansas Highway Patrol.
