Law Enforcement Prepares for Another Busy Crab Fest
Published April 22nd, 2014
WILLISTON-Security at this year's Crab Fest is a top priority for law enforcement in Levy County and the surrounding area.
Community leaders that have been going to the event for years say those measures just don't add up.
Earlier road closures, parking restrictions and a larger law enforcement presence is all in the name of safety this weekend according to the levy county sheriff.
Ministerial Faith Alliance President, Pastor Johnnie Jones III says too much security can be a bad thing, "We don't want law enforcement to be too heavy handed, we feel our festival is one of many in the Levy County area and we want the enforcement to be balanced."
Last year the levy county sheriff's office shelled out between 10 and 12 thousand dollars in overtime money to staff the event.
The Ministerial Faith Alliance will be hosting a community meeting at New Hope Baptist Church tomorrow at 7pm to discuss changes in protocol at this years Crab Festival.
