Low amount of crime reported at T In The Park 2009

Police say they're having a quiet time at Scottish bash

Police have reported a relatively low number of arrests at the T In The Park this weekend (July 10-12).

There have been 75 arrests, with 12 people taken into custody, on the site as of today (July 12).

Chief Superintendent Craig Suttie, working on the Balado site, described the weekend as a quiet one for his team and said they found most people to be in fine spirits.


Last year’s T In The Park was marred by a stabbing in the campsite and as a result security at this year’s festival was upped, with more CCTV cameras situated around the festival. This year a teenager was killed in a road traffic accident on Friday (July 10), just outside the festival site.

Suttie said in a statement: “The safety and security of the public is always a priority for us and it is a pleasure for us to work alongside DF Concerts in this regard when it comes to T In The Park .”
