Police presence

By Simone Wichers-Voss
 
During the Thanksgiving Holiday, traffic in Meridian becomes almost too much to maneuver around, according to Meridian Police Chief Chris Blanton. “You may notice more of a police presence during the holiday season around Meridian, Blanton said. “That’s because Meridian PD will be working with the Texas Department of Public Safety to step up our presence in town. Meridian is the “Back Way” to Dallas, allowing folks to stay off of I-35. This causes our small town to come congested.”
