Coming Friday and Saturday nights: Bad Boy Family Reunion shows mean "security and crowd control" measures, many vehicles

This Friday and Saturday night, the Bad Boy Family Reunion hip-hop shows, from approximately 8 pm to midnight should draw 14,000 people to the Barclays Center and could cause significant local disruption.

Because of "External Production Activity" on Dean Street and Atlantic Avenue between Flatbush and Sixth Avenues, there will be "a significant police presence," including unspecified "security and crowd control measures."

A "significant number of vehicles servicing guests, talent and event staff" is projected.

There will be "full deployments of Barclays Center Guest Relations, Pedestrian Traffic Managers and NYPD Traffic Enforcement Agents (TEAs) outside the building to assist with traffic and general event management." We'll see how many violators get fined.

Expect updates on the Barclays Center and the NYPD 78th Precinct Community Affairs Twitter accounts. Terence Kelly of Barclays Center Community Affairs (tkelly@brooklynse.com) can be contacted if any event/arena operations issues require attention.
