Security Chairman

Ron Newnum

The Security Committee manages the overall safety and security of Frontier Park. During Cheyenne Frontier Days™ (CFD) they provide for gate access and crowd control and handle all parking, both on and off the park, including the shuttle sites. Their duties include contracting uniformed security and coordinating shuttle bus services. They maintain an Emergency Response Plan for the entire park and coordinate various issues with the Cheyenne Fire and Police Departments, Laramie County Sheriff’s Department, Wyoming Highway Patrol, and Homeland Security. Ron’s team issues the badges, passes, and parking stickers to the other committees for distribution to volunteers and special guests. Additionally, this committee is responsible for the First Aid on the West side of the park, providing doctors and nurses for any situation. Lastly, they are also responsible for over 90 percent of the signs around the park: printing, hanging, and maintaining them. This is Ron’s third year serving as Chairman of the Security Committee, and he is proud to represent such a great committee and be part of such a great celebration.
