Halloween help in Athens
(2007-10-25)
(WOUB) - There will be a lot of law enforcement officials in Athens this Halloween weekend - because the city is welcoming them to help manage the annual street party.

The city is teaming up with the Ohio Department of Public Safety and the Ohio Investigative Unit in order to keep people safe during the celebration.

Athens Police Chief Rick Mayer says in addition to local police officers, others from departments in all adjoining counties will help out.

Last year in Athens more than 120 people were arrested during the Halloween celebration and there were several alcohol-related crashes.
