Local law enforcement: Artpark crowds pushing them to breaking point


Niagara Gazette —

So the locals carry on.

“We don’t want to see the concerts end,” Robertson, of Greg’s Pools, said. “But this is a public safety issue and  they need to do something about it.”

In the meantime, Robertson will cope as best he can. He and his family will continue to stand guard by their business on Tuesday nights to make sure concertgoers don’t decide to take an unapproved swim in their outdoor display pools or otherwise get into trouble.

“A couple of weeks ago, there was a group tailgating across the street before the concert and one of them was so drunk he passed out,” Robertson said. “They put him in the front seat of (the pickup truck) and then one of them came to me and said, ‘Here’s my cell phone number. Can you keep an eye (on the drunk guy) and call me if there’s a problem?’ “
