Police Send Message to Public Ahead of Ironton Parade

IRONTON, Ohio (WSAZ) -- The police officers who will be protecting the public during the nation's longest running Memorial Day parade are taking every precaution to keep the public safe during the holiday celebration.

The recent bombings in Boston have the Ironton Police Department on high alert.

Police Chief Dan Johnson is asking the public to please be observant of the surroundings. If you see something that doesn't seem right he asks that you alert a member of law enforcement.

Chief Johnson asks that parade-goers refrain from leaving items like backpacks, boxes and bags unattended.

The parade kicks off at 10 a.m. on Monday.
