Massachusetts State Police, Officials Vigilant Following Calif. Shooting

Massachusetts State Police said they are closely monitoring developments

Police and public officials across New England say they are remaining vigilant in the wake of Wednesday's San Bernardino shooting.

Massachusetts State Police issued a statement saying they are continuing to monitor developments and intelligence related to the California shooting.

"Troopers across the state routinely operate with heightened awareness and constant vigilance for any suspicious activity," state police spokesman Dave Procopio said. "Likewise, we remind our citizens to call police immediately if they see anyone or anything suspicious or seemingly out of place for their surroundings."

In New Hampshire, Gov. Maggie Hassan said public safety officials are also closely monitoring the situation in California and will coordinate with local and federal officials, including providing additional resources to ensure security at any large gatherings.

Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy said he reached out to California Gov. Edmund Brown Jr. on Wednesday to express condolences and offer assistance in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting.

"...I want to say I just completed a call to Gov. Brown out in California where I expressed condolences on behalf of the people of Connecticut towards the people of California and those expected by the shooting and offered to be of any assistance we could be," Malloy said at a press conference. "We both commiserated about these kinds of situations taking place in our country and during our respective terms..."

Malloy also issued a statement saying there will be enhanced state police patrols at Department of Development Services facilities "out of an abundance of caution."
