Greenville Police Planning For Safe Bicentennial Celebration

A big crowd is expected for this weekend’s bicentennial celebration in Greenville.

Greenville Chief of Police Lou Lorton said plans have been made to make it a safe event for everyone.

Lorton said there will be additional officers on patrol and he is certain that the department has safety under control. He asks attendees to be mindful of parking restrictions. Parking will not be allowed on certain streets to allow for emergency vehicle travel, should they be necessary. He said there could be some delays leaving the area after the celebration each night, but they don’t anticipate any problems.
