Police working to keep fans safe at CMA Fest

Posted: Updated:

Security will be tight through downtown Nashville this week for CMA Fest.

Before you make your way to some of the stages on Lower Broadway, you're going to have to get your bags checked.

Metro Police are working with security at all of the locations where CMA events are taking place. A lot of the security will be in place overnight, working 24/7 to make sure no mishaps or dangerous threats come into the area.

"You can't prevent everything from happening, but what you can do is plan to mitigate anything that happens and put a quick end to it. I think we do that really well," said Sgt. John Bourque with the Metro Nashville Police Department.

Downtown hotels are also making sure they are keeping their guests safe. They will be going over security measures, such as how to react to active shooters.
