With the city of Boston still in crisis following deadly explosions near the finish line of their iconic marathon, CDNews sends its best wishes to residents, victims and first responders.
The Seattle Police Department said that though there is no indication any incidents are planned in the city, they are joining cities across the nation in taking extra precautions. From the SPD Blotter:
Our thoughts are with the people of Boston, the athletes participating in the Boston Marathon and their families.
We have been in communication with the Mayor’s Office and the Office of Emergency Management. We haven’t received any information to indicate that there is a threat to Seattle. Still, we have begun taking reasonable precautions to protect our community.
On duty resources have been directed to increase their patrols in our neighborhoods and around our infrastructure. Seattle residents may see an increased police presence.
We are also asking for public support. Please report any suspicious activity to 911.
