Los Angeles Police(LAPD) Chief Charlie Beck said that they will be increasing security at sporting events in the city after the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

For tonight’s Dodgers versus the San Diego Padres game guest will be seeing a higher security presence with additional police, bomb squad personnel, dogs and others at Dodger Stadium. “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.”

In addition the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department also released a statement saying, “While the cause of the explosions this morning at the Boston Marathon are still under investigation, our vigilance has been raised,” said Sheriff Lee Baca. He added, “The heightened alert of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department includes increased patrols to create a more visible presence where people congregate, such as government buildings, shopping centers, athletic events, and public transit.”

LAPD had planned to increase security before the bombing in Boston due to the fight between the two teams last week in which Dodger pitcher Zach Greinke broke his collar bone.
