OHP Prepares For Monday's Inauguration Event
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma - Organizers say they're expecting about 2,000 people at the state capitol Monday for governor-elect Kevin Stitt's inauguration.
State troopers, police, and maintenance crews are busy right now making last minute preparations. Maintenance crews had to take down the Capitol Christmas tree and build a stage for the event.
For state troopers, they say the crowd will be their biggest challenge.
"We have resources that have been in place for a while and we haven't gotten any new information to expect any challenges. We feel like we are prepared for whatever comes up," said OHP Captain Paul Timmons.
Organizers are advising everyone to arrive at the ceremony early because parking will be tricky.
