Major Police Effort for Halloween

The Halloween celebration has become something ECU is known for across Eastern Carolina, and with it comes thousands of people looking for scary fun in the downtown area.

Greenville police want everyone to have a safe celebration this year. That's why they are calling in a number of their officers, nearly 120 Greenville police officers from that department alone, and more from Pitt County Sheriffs, Highway Patrol, and the Ayden, Farmville, Winterville, and Washington Police departments. Officers say they have to keep their presence known downtown to keep everyone safe.
