BPD Community Advisory

This morning, Monday, December 28, 2015, the Boston Police Department received information from the NYPD regarding an anonymous phone call to their 911 system making reference to threats to Boston. The BPD and FBI have investigated the call and assessed this threat to lack specificity, and therefore are questioning its credibility. The BPD remains vigilant in their patrols throughout the city and maintains high visibility with increased resources at all large public gatherings and venues. While the BPD continues to monitor this situation, at this time there remains no credible information regarding any threat to the Boston area.
