A Statement from Police Commissioner Edward Davis

As a result of recent arrests made by the FBI in Colorado and New York, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security have nationally distributed a situational awareness bulletin regarding improvised explosive devises to local law enforcement urging continued vigilance in observing and reporting suspicious activity.There is no known specific threat to Boston or Massachusetts at this time. However, Boston Police officers are routinely reminded to remain vigilant. There is ongoing conflict in Afghanistan and Iraq and the tragedy of September 11th reminds us to always be vigilant for the threat of terrorism. The department reminds community members to report any suspicious behavior to the Boston Police by contacting 911 or our Crimestoppers tip line 1-800-494-TIPS.
