The Tulsa Police Department is assuring Tulsans they are on alert after the deadly bombing in Boston on Monday.
Chief Chuck Jordan sent the following message on Monday evening:
The Tulsa Police Department, as is all of America, is horrified by the events in Boston today.
The citizens of Tulsa can rest assured that we are assessing any possible impact on the Tulsa area. We have been in constant contact with appropriate intelligence agencies since the events occurred to determine if there are any national or local Tulsa implications to the Boston incident.
At this time, there does not seem to be any threat to Tulsa or any other location but we will continue to monitor the situation.
We will continue assessing any anticipated crowd events in Tulsa as well. Since 911 we always consider any possible terrorist activity at large gatherings and we will continue to do so.
The men and women of the Tulsa Police Department are committed to keeping our citizens safe. We will use any and all resources at our disposal to ensure that safety.
As always, we ask for the help of our public. If you see something, say something.
Two people were killed and dozens others injured after two bombs went off at the Boston Marathon on Monday.
