While you’re out enjoying the fair this weekend you’ve probably seen a beefed up presence of police and sheriff’s deputies.

With so many people coming to the fair over these next 11 days, it’s no secret that your safety is their top priority.

On the first Friday of the Tulsa State Fair, Sheriff Vic Regalado makes it a tradition to walk the midway with his deputies.

His deputies will be working around the clock to protect the fairgrounds, which becomes a small city.

“We try to be visible. Most of the deputies if not all have a variety of different little sheriff’s office trinkets like stickers and little key chains when we can—when they’re not on rides of course,” said Sheriff Regalado.

The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office wants to remind everyone they’ve got a command post located on the east end of the expo, a booth inside the expo and a lost kids center near the kiddie rides.
