Washington, Mo. - Thousands of hours are spent, mostly by volunteers, working to make the Washington Town and Country Fair one of the best across the state, but also take extensive measures to ensure the safety of fair goers.

Washington Police Chief Ken Hahn told QuickNewsNow, "Safety is always our number one concern.  We want people to have fun but also feel safe," which is why for the past two years the entire fair grounds along with numerous parking areas are under continues monitored video surveillance.

Fair organizers first added video surveillance ten years ago, slowly adding additional cameras and now for the past two years fair goers are safer than ever before.
