Although attendance for the New York State Fair is so low that vendors are cutting back on staff, the police patrolling the crowds are not doing the same.
While 18 days is longer than normal, the State Police budgets for the Fair every year, including overtime.
The daily attendance has remained low, but concerts are attracting thousand of people.
The Train concert on Monday saw 28,000 patrons.
Another reason for not reducing staff is in case an incident occurs and there aren’t enough staff to cover.
