Boston police on two-man patrols following Baton Rouge shooting

BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston Police posted on Twitter that all officers will be patrolling in two-officer units after three officers were shot and killed in Baton Rouge on Sunday. 

This is done “in the best interests of officer safety,” according to the tweet.

Massachusetts state police released the following statement regarding the incident:

Our Commonwealth Fusion Center continues to communicate with the federal Department of Homeland Security and other law enforcement partners to monitor developments in Baton Rouge. At this point there is no known connection to Massachusetts.

We routinely remind our troopers — and did so as recently as last week — of the need to maintain a high level of situational awareness, not only for suspicious activity, but also for their own personal safety. We will reiterate that directive again this week.
