Sheriff's Office: Have fun, but be safe at Rolling Stones concert


Fans going to see The Rolling Stones play at Ralph Wilson Stadium Saturday are reminded that the Buffalo Bills' Code of Conduct is in effect for the concert.

Erie County Sheriff's Patrol Chief Scott Joslyn says law enforcement is preparing like they do for every Bills home game.

Joslyn says uniformed deputies in marked cars as well as undercover officers will be patrolling in and around the stadium.

"While they're on the property of the Bills, they are expected to act appropriately and refrain from fighting and consuming copious amounts of alcohol to the level of intoxication and being belligerent. Really just interfering with everyone else's right to have a good time," Joslyn told WBFO.

At the same time, he says fans should enjoy themselves.

"We want them to tailgate. We want them to experience that environment. But we want them to be safe. We want everybody to get home. If you choose to drink alcohol, have a designated driver," Joslyn said.

Josyln says security entering the stadium will be tight. No large bags, backpacks or coolers are allowed. He says items being carried in must be inside a 12-inch-by-12-inch clear plastic bag.
