Security increased at Boston LGBT establishments

BOSTON (WHDH) - Massachusetts public safety officials met with State Police Monday about increasing security in the wake of the mass shooting in Orlando, especially at LGBT establishments.

“We are hoping to alleviate any concerns the LGBT community had as the result of the terrible tragedy in Orlando,” said Public Safety Secretary Daniel Bennett.

Security will also be increased at Logan Airport and MBTA stations. Leaders from the FBI, Boston Police, State Police, the Department of Corrections and others met with the public safety organization the Gay Officers Action League to discuss safety measures.

Bennett did not address any specific plans that law enforcement has regarding security. Gov. Charlie Baker said people will be seeing a difference at the airport and on the T.

“They are taking all of this this enormously seriously and will continue to have an expanded and more visible presence,” said Baker.
