FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Back to the Bricks rolls into Flint next week and law enforcement are preparing for thousands of people to take in the classic cars.

A unified task force gathered on Friday to lay out their plans for keeping the annual summer event safe for all who attend.

Al Hatch, founder and chairman of Back to the Bricks, said law enforcement are doing everything they can for this year's Back to the Bricks to ensure it goes off without a hitch.

"A family oriented, fun filled week. So it is working well. We commend our public safety officials. They have done an excellent job," Hatch said.

He said police are beefing up their already state of the art surveillance system by adding extra cameras and monitoring systems.

"Our message is simple, whether you participate or you are a spectator, please join us in this great community event. Have fun! Just stay safe and be responsible and if you have young children with you, be responsible for them too," Police Capt. Collin Bernie said.

Police are warning everyone burnouts, excessive speed and revving engines will not be tolerated at this year's event.

Police will also be enforcing a curfew in the downtown area for kids starting Tuesday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. They will be on the lookout for anyone under the age of 16 who is downtown without a parent.
