Commander 3400 Trailers Help Secure MN State Fair

Commander 3400 Trailers Help Secure MN State Fair

Months of planning went into strengthening security at Minnesota State Fair 2023, and by all accounts it was a resounding success.

After a shooting outside the main gate last year, State Fair Police Chief Ron Knafla and his team worked hard to ramp up nearly every aspect of securing the fair grounds. They increased the number of officers by 30%, added patrols around perimeter fencing, and implemented additional security measures at gates and entrance points.

The Minnesota State Fair Police Department is made up of law enforcement from 65 agencies across the state, and they partner closely with Twin Cities departments to obtain additional security resources. This year, the fair was loaned Commander 3400 surveillance trailers for the two-week period to monitor parking, traffic and crowds.

Minnesota hosts over 1.8 million guests at the ‘Great Minnesota Get-Together’ making it one of the largest state fairs in the country.
