Police outline plan to keep people safe on during Kentucky Oaks and Derby

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they are going to make sure horse racing fans stay safe at the Kentucky Oaks and Derby.

Louisville Metro Police outlined their plan for security and traffic this afternoon. They urged people to keep track of their personal belongings, stay hydrated and understand the effects of alcohol over a long day.

Police also asked people to use public transportation in an effort to reduce traffic.

"I think it's very important that people understand that if they see something that they think is out of order, or unusual, they're not the only person who thinks that," said Maj. Kelly Jones, LMPD Special Operations Commander. "We want you to speak up. Find the nearest law enforcement officer. Find a first responder. Find anyone who's in an official capacity."
