Peoria's Police Chief says the force is prepared.
When it comes to people's fears about a Boston Marathon type incident here, Chief Steve Settingsgaard says the radar is clear right now.
The Chief says there is no information to indicate Peoria is in any imminent danger.
However, Chief Settingsgaard says the department is being vigilant, going through public events calendars in Peoria.
The Chief says his staff has been contacting organizers and host facilities of events soon to happen.
Settingsgaard says officers are providing them more tips on recognizing any possible unusual activity.
Chief Settingsgaard says this is just precautionary until more is learned about what and who triggered the Boston bombings.
But, how will security measures change for Peoria's first Marathon next month?
Settingsgaard says there will be a change in how some things are handled for the city's inaugural 26.2 mile race.
But, the Chief isn't sure yet exactly what will be modified, again until more facts are learned what was behind the Boston Marathon tragedy.
Chief Settingsgaard thinks everything will work out OK.
Settingsgaard anticipates shoring up the Peoria Marathon security strategy soon.
