Keeping People Safe at the Fair a Priority for Hardin County Sheriff’s Office
It is day 2 of the Hardin County Fair.
The official opening ceremony took place at noon on Tuesday.
Hardin County Sheriff Keith Everhart was on hand and stated that his crew works hard to keep things safe over the course of the fair, “Obviously our special deputies, our auxiliary deputies, they work out here all week long. This year we’re doing something different. I’m having all of my full time deputies who are their road shifts, they’re working out of the fairgrounds. They’ll be answering their calls from here. That just gives us more of a presence on the fairgrounds when they’re not answering calls. Our whole goal is that this fairground stays safe 24 hours a day for the next six days, and they like being part of the community, so it’s a good way to try to make that happen.”
He added that people can feel safe when bringing their family to the fairgrounds, “If there are issues that arise, just grab someone in a sheriff’s uniform, and we will deal with it accordingly.”
