Increased security is planned for MICHAEL JACKSON's tomb site at FOREST LAWN CEMETARY, as well as the family home in ENCINO, CA, on this, the one-year anniverasry of the death of THE KING OF POP. THE LOS ANGELES TIMES reports "law enforcement officials said they will follow an 'event action plan' FRIDAY intended to ensure peace and safety as fans mark the first anniversary of MICHAEL JACKSON's death."
"We hope that anyone who decides to go to either venue does so safely and pays attention to what security officers tell them, and hopefully it will be a fun weekend for everyone," said Capt. JOHN EGAN, commanding officer for the WEST VALLEY DIVISION of the LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPT.
Police in GLENDALE, CA, home of FOREST LAWN, said visitors should "expect a significant increase in guests. Fans will be allowed to walk by the front of the Holly Terrace area of the Great Mausoleum, where JACKSON is interred. They can leave tributes, such as flowers, in a designated area and then must leave the park."
