First Big Weekend Looms For New State Fair Police Force
DES MOINES, Iowa -- A brand new police force is on patrol tonight and fair goers will be first in line to benefit from their protection. "We have police officers that are on reserve from other forces that make up the compliment of detail so really we just supplemented the state patrol with our sworn officers as well and they work in partnership to keep the safety of the grounds," said Iowa State Fair CEO Gary Slater.
