Local Law Enforcement are once again prepared for an aspect of rodeo week that draws thousands to downtown Sheridan. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has the story.
Last year, the Sheridan Police Department obtained four ID scanners for use within Sheridan County. Those scanners were used at the street dances that take place in downtown Sheridan Friday and Saturday nights during Sheridan WYO Rodeo week. Sheridan Police Chief Richard Adriaens says that the scanners were a big help in their effort to deter underage drinking.
The Chief says that aside from having additional scanners this year, they won't be doing anything too different regarding policing the street dances.
As in years past, the Command Center, or hydration station as it's known in some circles, will be set up near Grinnell Plaza offering free water to those in need of H2O.
The street dance will begin at approximately 9 o'clock both nights and costs $5 dollars admission.
