Jefferson County Sheriff Lafayette Woods Jr., on Tuesday said there were fewer people in Pine Bluff for homecoming at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff this year than there have been in previous years.

Appearing on the Oldies 101.3 morning show, Woods said.

Woods said he expected to see a lot more people than what he did, noting that some events which had taken place in the past were cancelled this year.

On another subject, Woods praised the effectiveness of the sheriff’s office Skywatch surveillance system as well as new system that was recently put in place and said he would like to have more cameras.
