Dothan PD Getting Ready for Mardi Gras

Extra police will be out this weekend for the Mardi Gras parade in downtown Dothan.  Authorities say there will be 40 officers assigned along the parade route and others keeping a watch on the cameras in the downtown area.  Last year there was a problem with spectators jumping the barricades to get closer to the floats.  Its estimated 40,000 people will attend tomorrow afternoon’s event.
