Oxford Police Department Announces Game Day Plans

The Oxford Police Department sends the following message for the public.

We are looking forward to hosting Vanderbilt fans this weekend along with our regular game day visitors. To ensure that everyone has a fun and safe time celebrating we will have an increased presence in and around the downtown Square Area. Our goal is to be proactive in preventing any disturbances or unsafe activities, and as always do not hesitate to contact us should the need arise.

Fans may park at FNC Park, Oxford High School, and the Jackson Avenue Center and will be transported to campus by shuttle. Shuttles will run every 10 minutes depending on road restrictions. Oxford Police want to remind everyone to put valuables in the trunk and lock your cars.

After the game, be cautious of police officers directing traffic and fans walking to their cars.

And a word on game day traffic regarding West Jackson Avenue:

After the Game: All traffic traveling Eastbound or Westbound on West Jackson Avenue will only be allowed to make right turns at intersections, no one will be allowed to make a left turn crossing traffic. This will ensure the most efficient exit from the center of the city. Expect delays in traffic as everyone will be leaving the campus and the city of Oxford near the same time.

We are working with MDOT who will be electronically monitoring the Highway 6 and Jackson Ave. intersection. Please be patient as we trust MDOT to use their technology for optimum traffic flow. Fixed routes will continue until traffic is flowing freely.

For more information, follow us on Twitter @OxfordPolice and Facebook, tune in to AM 1630, FM 93.7 and FM 105.1 for game and traffic updates, or call the Oxford Police Department at 662-232-2400.
