The police at Purdue are quite strict and won’t hesitate to crack down on underage drinking, drugs, and illegal parking. However, it seems that if you’re smart about what you’re doing and don’t make a messy fool out of yourself, you should be able to steer clear of any unwanted run-ins with the cops. Be careful what you do during Grand Prix week, as the cops are extra observant at this time, and taking the time to be a little more cautious about your conduct is worlds better than getting slapped with a hefty fine for public intoxication.
Although students might gripe about the seemingly overwhelming presence of the Purdue Police, you do have to admit, they’re just doing their jobs. The police aren’t kidding around, either. When it comes to underage drinking, it's two strikes and you’re out, and there is absolutely no tolerance when it comes to drugs. But if you exercise some caution, you should be able to avoid any ugly incidents.
