Police Thunder Request: if you see something, say something

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- With more than two dozen cameras, and 1,100 police officers set to patrol the streets, law enforcement officials say they are ready for this year's Thunder Over Louisville.

Recent downtown violence has put LMPD on alert. Police were flooded with reports of injuries and crimes after a teenage mob attacked at random last month.

Police thanked the community for the tips that have led to several arrests, and say more arrests are likely.

But police say this weekend is supposed to be about safe, family fun -- and that's just what police want to happen.

"We just work behind the scenes," said LMPD spokeswoman Carey Klain. "A lot of people don't realize how much goes on, but it is very safe. It's one of the safest places in the city."

The one request from police: if you see something, say something.
