Photo Gallery of Police Scotland at TRNSMT Festival

Over the weekend of 7th-9th July, Police Scotland attended the first ever TRNSMT Festival at Glasgow Green with a number of units deployed to ensure the safety of over 100,000 music lovers.

Armed Policing, the Mounted Unit, the Dog Unit, the Marine Unit, the Stop Unit...just a few of the Police Scotland departments in attendance. 

Thankfully, the vast majority of festival goers were well behaved, with only 10 arrests over the weekend which saw headline sets from Radiohead, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro.

Our officers provided support to the public at the festival to ensure they were kept safe and well informed. Many even got involved in a selfie or two!

The success of the festival was recognised by Chief Inspector Simon Jeacocke who said,

"The TRSNMT festival was a great event and from the 100,000 people who attended there were only 10 arrests for minor offences. It was clear that everyone was determined to have a good time and the sun even came out on Saturday which made for a real carnival atmosphere.

"I would like to thank those who attended for their support and co-operation over the weekend, particularly whilst dealing with the increased security entering the venue. I hope everyone who attended had a wonderful time."
