Other agencies participating in this event included the Wisconsin Department of Justice Mobile Crime Lab, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department, Merrill Parks and Recreation, Merrill Community Enrichment Center, Wisconsin State Patrol, Wisconsin DNR, T.B. Scott Library, Merrill Street Department, Merrill Water Utility, Lincoln County Crime Stoppers, NTC Center for Excellence, the Merrill Transit System, and more.
Merrill Transit offered bus rides to and from the event all evening at no cost to the rider.
