Dodger fans arriving at tonight’s home game against the San Diego Padres might notice more officers as well as the LAPD bomb squad and police dogs in the wake of today’s deadly blasts at the Boston Marathon. The additional precautions were announced by Chief Charlie Beck as part of increased security at sporting events, the L.A.Times reports. Said the Times story:
“We will be increasing deployment at all scheduled sporting events in the near future,” Beck said. “I’ve already been in contact with the Dodgers about this.”
Tonight’s game includes several activities planned to commemorate Jackie Robinson Day.
