As thousands prepare for Halloween in downtown Greenville tonight, East Carolina University is planning bus services, alternative celebrations and a strong police presence to keep students safe and entertained.
Lt. Chris Sutton with ECU police said about 45 officers will work on and off campus tonight, estimating that 8,000-12,000 people will be on campus and downtown.
“It will be a large crowd,” Sutton said. “We probably won’t see as many visitors coming into the city of Greenville as we would see on a Friday or Saturday night, but we will see most of the student body. I would expect ECU, probably Pitt Community College and local people that may not have to go into work at an early time on Thursday. I think we’ll still have a large crowd.”
