  Email   Print
Major entrances to the public square had large trucks blocking the roads.
Armed police were at all entrances to the city, even the small and less used streets.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol's mobile communications unit was set-up near the square to assure reliable communication.
The city's parking lot on South Church Street is closed.

About an hour before the rally permit begins (1:30-4:00PM) both vehicle and foot traffic in the "open" area approaching the square was light.

On entrances to the town square, the city has placed the large garbage trucks and a large presence of heavily armed police are at each entrance.

The massive Tennessee Highway Patrol mobile communications center is set-up near the square to assure vital communications among all agencies and emergency responders.
