Game Day Security Eases Thanks to Respectful Fans

By  | 

As fans packed the stands Saturday for the seventh home game, both Aggies and Commodores gathered to cheer on their teams. Thanks to tight knit security, fans are able to sit back, relax and enjoy the game.

Several agencies collaborate with Texas A&M on game day, ensuring safety from all sides of the field.

College Station Police, Bryan Police and Blinn College Police, the Brazos County Sheriff's Office, Texas Department of Public Safety, ATF and the FBI all assist the University Police Department for home games. While all entities work closely together, Lt. Jon Fisher, Social Events Coordinator for University Police said they also credit how respectful fans are.

"We're really unique here we have really good fans," said Lt. Fisher. "Our fans are the best in the SEC, so we don't have to deal with the issues that other universities have to deal with during a football game."

Lt. Fisher said so far this season, Alabama was their biggest home game to supervise. Although they were not able to increase the number of officers, Lt. Fisher said their tactics were adjusted to fit the larger crowd.
