Downtown Greenville Preparations For Halloween

Halloween celebrations are set for this weekend and for one city in the east, it's one of the busiest for time for police officers.

The streets of downtown Greenville are quiet now, but that will be a different story this weekend.

Since Halloween falls on a Saturday officers expect to see an even larger crowd of party goers.

In response to the increase, the department say 125 Greenville Officers will be on patrol, with another 100 from the Sheriff's Office, East Carolina University and other law enforcement agencies.

Corporal Kip Gaskins says, they can never tell just how many people may show up, but they plan to cover all their bases.

Greenville police say the bars plan to stay open an extra hour, when the clock rolls back for daylight saving time.
