JCPD boosts patrols for Fourth of July
Tuesday, July 3, 2012
Jefferson City police will have additional officers patrolling the downtown area for the Fourth of July as well as officers on duty across the river in the north part of the city, where the public fireworks will be shot off at the end of the day.
As the crowd is anticipated to be higher than normal due to area communities canceling their festivities, department officials are asking that fairgoers comply with all traffic direction and parking rules during the events.
Those who may park along Mokane Road in North Jefferson City will be limited to parking on one side of the street and due to the dangerously dry conditions are citizens are asked to not bring any fireworks to that area.
Additional officers will also be watching for intoxicated drivers as part of funding provided from the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Division of Highway Safety.
