The Jefferson Theatre is one of the venues in Beaumont that draws musicians and entertainers.

Emily Wheeler is the marketing division manager for the city. She says safety is the top priority.

"We're in the entertainment business but really we're here to keep the people safe," Wheeler says.

Wheeler says an open line of communication between event staff and law enforcement is crucial.

Deputy Marcus McLellan echoed Wheeler, reminding all of us to say something if we see something out of the ordinary.

"Bring it to the attention of any law enforcement officer," McLellan said. "We'll interview them and see. They may just be having a bad day, or they may have something else in mind."
