DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – It’s been a year since the Saint Patrick’s Day riot on the University Of Dayton campus sent shock waves through the community, making UD officials revisit safety procedures.

UD officials said they have more police and staff on the ground in an effort to keep students under control and safe.  They said students will be held responsible for their behavior and could be cited though court and student discipline systems.

The boost in enforcement hasn’t gone unnoticed to UD student Bailey Myers.

“UD has stepped up the police patrolling I guess, a lot.  So I think people will not get as rowdy as they did last year.  Yeah, we’re still going to have fun, but I think it will be a lot more tame,” said Myers.

At last check, Dayton police told 2 NEWS they had no major disturbances to report.
