INTERVIEW: Hennepin County Sheriff Talks Memorial Weekend Safety

Friday is the start of the Memorial Day holiday weekend – a time when folks are traveling or maybe, if the weather cooperates, swimming.

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department will be loaning out life jackets for free as part of the Kids Don’t Float program. The jackets will be inside storage containers at the boat launches at Gray’s, Spring Park, and Maxwell Bays.

Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek also offered advice on how to stay safe when taking to the waters this weekend.

Watch the full interview here.
