NOW: Milwaukee Law Enforcement plans security strategy ahead of NBA Finals Games

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Police Department and the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office are working with multiple law enforcement agencies on a security strategy for the NBA finals.

More than 25-thousand people have packed the Deer District throughout the playoffs, and despite the massive crowds, only a few people have been arrested.

Milwaukee County Sheriff Earnell Lucas says he's confident in the security for the NBA Finals.

"We have the ability to secure multiple events at the same time," said Lucas. "No different now. We want everyone to come down, we want everyone to enjoy and be safe and responsible. All the law enforcement in Milwaukee and all throughout southeast Wisconsin, we're going to do our part to ensure that everyone has a safe time."

MPD says they plan to have more officers as well as motorcycle units, and bike and mounted patrols in the area during the game.
