(St. Paul, MN) — They are hiring cops at the State Fair. State Fair managers yesterday said they are 100 officers short for this year’s fair. The State Fair disbanded its police force before last year’s fair, but brought the police force back for this year. The fair’s new police chief says they are working on hiring new officers, but won’t be able to get enough people in time for the start of the fair in two weeks.
