COUNTY SHERIFF TO PROVIDE LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR PASADENA’S TOURNAMENT OF ROSES PARADE
LOS ANGELES COUNTY – The Board of Supervisors approved an agreement between the County Sheriff’s Department and the City of Pasadena to provide law enforcement services during the 122nd Tournament of Roses Parade on January 1, 2011, announced Mayor Michael D. Antonovich.
Due to the number of spectators and vehicles that enter the City of Pasadena to attend this event, supplemental law enforcement services are required to provide adequate police protection and traffic control. The estimated cost of the contract is $728,620.
“By combining resources, the Pasadena Police Department and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will provide a high level of security to protect the public during the Tournament of Roses parade,” said Antonovich.
