(Dothan,AL)--BamaJam Officials want this year's event to go off without a hitch, which is why they're stepping up security.

"We want everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves," Executive Producer Rendy Lovelady said. "We understand people are going to be misbehaving, and it's those people who are to going to have problems," he said.

More than 180 police shifts have been scheduled for the concert. Police will be patrolling the grounds, and will have even set up a make-shift jail.

"We are about safety 100 percent when it comes to this event," Lovelady said. "We do have a jail, we don't want to use it, but we will if necessary," he said.

According to Lovelady, water bottles, umbrellas, fanny packs, and lawn chairs will be the only things allowed in the gates as an additional safety precaution.

Police will be setting up check-points around Enterprise this weekend, and recommend everyone have a designated driver.
