Euphoria Greenville is downtown this weekend and it’s the first big event there since Greenville Police added more security.

It’s all to keep you safe and keep people coming downtown.

After events and festivals like Euphoria, getting people home safe was a concern after reported robberies and assaults downtown.

Now the city is working with a security company called ASG to put 2-3 guards in the park each night. 

7 On Your Side also saw Greenville Police officers patrolling the parks like the Falls Park area. They were looking for suspicious activity and making sure people go to their cars in nearby parking lots safety.

Media Relations Officer Jonathan Bragg said they’ve added more than 5 officers for just this weekend. They plan to add 8 more to patrol downtown full time.

 “Downtown isn’t dangerous per se it’s just a few isolated incidents. I think people are thinking I don’t want to do downtown but the officers are there. If you need anything we’re there and if you don’t feel comfortable drive around until you see an officer,” said Jonathan Bragg of Greenville Police.

The city is working with ASG Security Company to patrol other parts of the city too.

They have 3 guards in the park and others patrolling parking garages with white cars and yellow lights.

If you feel unsafe at any point you can find one of those guards.

You can also call Greenville police at 271-5333 and an officer will meet you.
