HENRY COUNTY, Ga. —
Six officers with the Henry County Police Department will help patrol crowds and traffic during the Democratic National Convention. Lt. Scott Gray told Channel 2's Dave Huddleston that the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department actually wanted 20 officers to help. Why Henry County PD? "It's our years of handling huge crowds during Atlanta Motor Speedway. About 100,000 people attend that annually, so it's gives us lots of training with crowd and traffic control," Scott said. Patrolman Travis Lasiter is one of the six officers that are traveling to Charlotte Sept.1 for the event. Lasiter said it's an honor to be selected. "To represent Henry County Police, all of metro Atlanta, is pretty neat, " Lasiter said. Lasiter said there will be other officers from across the country there as well, so it's going to be a great experience for him. "I will learn from other officers across the country and bring that information back to share with my department. Hopefully it will make us even better," Lasiter said. Gray said the six officers will leave Sept. 1 and return Sept. 7.
A Channel 2 Action News investigation finds thousands of local votes in the last presidential election didn’t count, though many should have.
