Extra Patrols Continue Ahead of Potential Block Party

The Harrisonburg Police Department will continue having extra officers patrolling this upcoming weekend in an effort to prepare for a possible block party along the lines of last year's Springfest.

Officers from other agencies will be helping, with the most presence being seen in apartment complex communities.

Last April, the Springfest block party turned into a civil disturbance during which police in riot gear used tear gas to disperse the crowd.

Several people faced various charges for actions during the event.

Anyone with information about or knowledge of a party that has the potential to get out of hand is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 540-574-5050.
