WEST ALLIS - Officials with Wisconsin State Fair are giving more information about security measures that'll be in place next month.
There will be 11 new security cameras and a policy that prevents young teenagers from being at the fair at night without a guardian.
"I'm extremely pleased by the collaboration with all the law enforcement agencies, and with the planning that we've done to make the 2012 Fair an even better experience than the previous Fair," said State Fair Park Board Chairman John Yingling. "I couldn't be more pleased with the collaboration that has occurred over the past year in making sure that we will have a good and secure fair."
Dozens of teenagers attacked fairgoers at the end of opening day last year.
