There will be several street closures in effect as well in the Southcenter District.
“We are aware of several posts being shared related to possible further looting attempts in the region today and tomorrow,” police said. “We encourage businesses that can do so to board up your properties to avoid potential damage.”
Police also encourage businesses and commercial property managers in the Southcenter area to close off parking lots to assist with restricting vehicular access to properties after hours.
