Busy holiday weekend for local law enforcement

Beale Street Security beefed up patrols for the thousands of extra people in Memphis this weekend. And police are out in full force with reserve officers and extra units. American Idol try-outs at FedExForum brought hopefuls from all over the country. Contestants start lining up before sunrise, so many of them say they will have a quiet Saturday night. But once the try-outs are over, they expect to party.

Law enforcement does not just have singers to worry about. It is also a holiday weekend, which means added patrols all over the region. Memphis Police are working with the Shelby County Sheriffs department watching out for drunk drivers.
