All officers were on duty on March 3, during Hoboken's St. Patrick's Day celebrations.
The city spent $98,771.25 on police, emergency management and traffic cops on LepreCon, according to city documents. The total number includes $95,897.85 in police overtime cost—the entire corps was on call that day—as well as $1,428.96 for emergency management and $1,444.44 for traffic cops. Eighteen people were arrested on LepreCon, the St. Patrick's Day party that took place on March 3 in lieu of parade day celebrations, a significant drop from last year's numbers. LepreCon's total cost is still unclear, because the amount of overtime to the fire and other city departments was not yet available. The cost seem to be in the same range as the parade days of the last couple of years, which exceeded $100,000.
