WBTV News learned on Wednesday that the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department set up two command centers to monitor the events surrounding this year's July 4 celebration.
One command center is at police headquarters, and another in Center City. A heavy police presence could be seen at the Transit Center Wednesday afternoon.
There were metal barricades that divided Tryon Street and the city has put in a number of portable work lights CMPD also has video cameras perched from high above.
In recent years police said they have seen a decline as it relates to the number of arrests on the Fourth of July.

show that featured music, dancing, and plenty of fireworks.
Barbara Coachman says

and we have a good crowd so far. Hopefully everybody enjoyed themselves," she
The night did take a

silence to remember the four airmen who died on Sunday in a plane crash, while
fighting the wildfires in South Dakota.
"It's really important
to honor those that served our county and in this case the ultimate sacrifice.
its really important," Charlotte resident Mary Grant said.
