NORMAN, Oklahoma -- A record number of freshman students are expected to swell classes at the University of Oklahoma on Monday. The number hit more than 4,000.

The increased population is keeping Norman police very busy with alcohol-related incidents.

Police arrested about three times as many people for minor in possession the week before classes than the week prior when campus was more tame.  About four times as many complaints of alcohol violations were received by the Norman Police Department in the same time frame.

Police say they have added more of a focus on certain areas to keep members of the university's community safe.
