The amount of tourists in town for Tulip Time means extra work for the Pella Police Department. Lieutenant Shane Cox tells us that they will have their reserve Officers around during the festivities. He says the primary difference is during severe weather. They have worked with the Tulip Time Steering Committee to set up shelter locations in case of severe weather. The churches in the downtown area are set up to hold people in case of severe weather, along with the underground parking garage under the Molengracht, and if possible, the holding cells of the Police Station.
