A lot of runners will be in Columbus for the Inaugural Mill Race Marathon Saturday. And with all those people here for the event, will security be an issue to protect not just the runners but spectators as well?
Columbus Public Safety spokesman Lt. Matt Myers says the city is ready and couldn't do it without the help of many different agencies including the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Office, the Columbus Fire Department and Indiana State Police.
Myers says the community also plays a major role in helping police with security, so if you see or hear anything that is suspicious, call police and they will follow up.
He adds that extra officers from the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Office and Indiana State Police will help Columbus Police with patrolling the area.
