CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- Just over a week ago the Penninger Fire started on the Greenway near the Jackson County Expo. Now in preparation for Country Crossings, the Jackson County Sheriff's Office completed five hour Greenway sweep.

“We want to make folks as safe as possible so we don't need any fire spreading. We don't need any sort of crime happening either. That sort of goes along with it, like theft and disorderly conduct. So we want to make this enjoyable and run smoothly," said Corporal James Biddle with the Jackson County Sheriff’s office.

During this sweep, deputies found a few homeless people with their belongings. They were given information with resources. Patrolling the greenway doesn't stop Wednesday.

"We're going to patrol that constantly with law enforcement and fire suppression equipment to keep everything safe," Cpl. Biddle said.

Deputies will be here during all four days of the festival.

Jackson County Sheriff's Office usually does these sweeps about once a month. Now they are starting to think about doing them more often as often as bi-weekly.
