Freeroll events shall only be held with the protection and cooperation of both the Police Department of the City of Pittsburgh, and the Carnegie Mellon University Campus Police Department.

Off-duty City of Pittsburgh police officers, usually from the Park Police Department, are hired by the Sweepstakes Committee and Carnegie Mellon University to provide police protection during all of the freeroll events. Arrangements to have these officers present during the events should be made by the Sweepstakes Chairman, in cooperation with the Sweepstakes Advisor, at the same time that the permits to use the streets are applied for.

Usually a minimum of four officers are needed to provide protection during the events. They should be available during the entire time that the events are underway, and should report to the Sweepstakes Chairman or the Sweepstakes Advisor on each day of events, at least 30 minutes before the events are scheduled to begin that day. These officers should be stationed as follows:


• One on Schenley Drive near the clubhouse for the Schenley Park Golf Course.

• One on Circuit Road at its intersection with Schenley Drive, near the George Westinghouse Memorial Pond.

• One on Panther Hollow Road at its intersection with Schenley Drive, near the north end of the Panther Hollow Bridge.

• One on Schenley Drive at the eastern end of the Schenley Bridge, near its intersection with Frew Street. (This officer might alternatively be stationed at the western end of the Schenley Bridge.)


Carnegie Mellon University Campus Police should be available during the entire time that the events are underway in the event that their assistance is needed. Arrangements to have these officers present during the events should be made by the Sweepstakes Chairman, in cooperation with the Sweepstakes Advisor.
