Changes Enhance Security at Duk Duk Daze
The New Hope Police Department plans to double the police presence at Duk Duk Daze this year. They say in years past some festival goers became unruly and caused security concerns.
“We are going to have a fenced area that’s going to require paying five dollar to get in,” said Capt. Scott Crocker with the New Hope Police Department. “You will receive a token and you can use that token to spend at any of the food stands or anything like that. We will also have about double the amount of police there.”
Along with that, the Lions Club hired extra security to make sure everyone is safe. The New Hope Police Department is making the changes with the goal of making the festival more family friendly.
But the New Hope Police Department is also bringing some activities along for the kids as well. They will also have information about the new hands-free law which goes into effect Aug. 1.
If you have questions about the security changes you can call the New Hope Police Departments non-emergency line at (763) 531-5170.
