Indianapolis Police Increase Patrols After Boston Explosions

From the Indianapolis police to a force in Washington for Frank Straub.

Indiana Capitol Police in downtown Indianapolis have stepped up their patrols in the wake of the explosions at the Boston Marathon on Monday.

Capitol Police officers were seen with K-9 officers around Monument Circle Monday night.

Indiana State Police Captain Dave Bursten says they, like many law enforcement agencies across the country, are simply checking places that could be potential targets.

Bursten says he expects increased patrols among all agencies in the days and weeks to come.

He says all departments have been making plans for the upcoming events next month and they will continue to look at those plans to make sure the city is as safe as it can be.
