Layrisson: 2011 Strawberry Fest may be 'safest' on record, but not record-breaker for crowds - PONCHATOULA---Ponchatoula Police Chief Bry Layrisson said this year's Strawberry Festival may have been the safest on record, with no major crimes reported and fewer arrests than on a regular weekend.

Layrisson said that he will meet Monday morning with officers from the many law enforcement agencies who helped at this year's festival to gather actual statistics and information.

Some of those agencies were the Tangipahoa and St. Tammany Sheriff's Offices, local police from several town's and cities, and state police along with other state departments.
